Series:  You Belong
Preacher: David Kobedi
Bible Reading: Ephesians 4:20-32
Date: 13 August 2023

“There are two types of people in this world, the Givers, and the Takers. The Takers sometimes eat better, but the Givers always sleep better.” I wonder what you make of those words from a famous American TV star Danny Thomas. What he means by Takers and givers is this: there are people who approach life with an attitude of “What can I get?”, those are Takers and then there are those who approach the world with an attitude of “What can I give?”, those are Givers. And it seems easier to be a Taker than a Giver. What makes it easy is that Takers seem to ‘eat’ and prosper at the expense of Givers. How true is that for our context in South Africa? From Corporate to Government to our personal lives, we are more tempted to be Takers.

Paul in Ephesians 4:28 explores the theme of work and possessions and he challenges the Christians to intentionally embrace the attitude of Giving in their day-to-day lives. Join us in listening to this sermon as it explores how the Gospel motivates us to be Givers in the context of our middle-class Jo’burg lives.
