施比受更為有福 - 董東儀
我信基督是在高中的時候。在我信基督之前，我不知道什麼是愛。因為我在一個貧窮的家庭長大，而我的父母一直爲了錢而爭吵，所以我有時把人們的好意當作理所當然。我記得第一次去教會參加聖誕節慶祝會時，我就問人要聖誕禮物。但是經過這些年，神已經改變了我，讓我從一個接受者變成給予者，因為有一節聖經經文一直留在我的心裡，“施比受更爲有福”。 (使徒行傳 20:35)

From A Taker To Giver -
Dong Yi Dong
I believed in Christ when I was a high school student. Before I believed in Christ, I did not know what love was. Because I grew up in a poor family, and my parents would always fight over due to money, I sometime took people’s kindness for granted. I remembered when I first went to church to celebrate Christmas, I asked people for Christmas gifts. But God has changed me from a taker to a giver over these years since there is a Bible verse that always stays in my heart, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Act 20:35)
God has encouraged me to put this verse into practice. Therefore, I have volunteered as a summer school teacher in Seattle since 2003. Although I have to pay for my own flight tickets and meals, I feel so happy and blessed when I serve those people who need help. Also, I volunteered with my colleagues at a local elementary school bike building event. The photo that was taken at the event got selected for my company’s volunteer home page, and I got recognized at my workplace because of that.
People always say it is tough to make friends at work. I have been blessed that I make friends with my coworkers in current and previous jobs. We have maintained friendship even when we work in different companies today. When God has changed me from a taker to giver, I can easily build relationship with other people.
