More blessed to give!

St. Paul testified he practiced our Lord Jesus Christ’s moral principle of giving, saying, “ I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”  (Acts 20:35) Here is a beautiful video demonstrating this virtue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIpExKZw38k
