Count what truly counts
“The good life” is about getting; but a great and godly life is about giving.
That’s what Pastor Ruttan explores in this sermon on Acts 20:13-38 where Paul recounts some of his own hardships and gives a farewell speech to the elders in Ephesus. Paul quotes Jesus’ words that “It is more blessed to give than to receive” as an instructive encouragement to those doing God’s work when it’s hard.
This sermon explores what it means to be blessed, and provides some examples (from Paul) about what a life of giving looks like today.
Yes, count your blessings; but count what truly counts.
