RE Verse reading–Acts 20:17-35 (day one) “You yourselves know. . .how I was with you the whole time, serving the Lord with all humility and with tears and with trials” (vs 18-19) Do you like unselfish people? I do. They attract and inspire me. In 2 Corinthians 9, the Bible says that God loves cheerful givers. Acts 20 says that people love cheerful givers too. Paul is meeting with the elders of the church in Ephesus for the last time. He loves these men. They love him. It may sound egotistical, but Paul is actually making a point that he has been unselfish in his service and that the same will be required of them when he is gone. The church cannot exist unless people give unselfishly. Can you think of examples in your own life? People who have been generous, courageous, sacrificial in the cause of Christ? If so, then God is calling you to follow their example and become an inspiration to others.
