Excerpt from The Proclamation of Freedom: A Sermon Preached in the North Church, Salem, January 4, 1863 Acts xx. 35. - It is more blessed to give than to receive. The apostle Paul tells us that these were words of Jesus. They are not found in the Evangelical histories, and were probably preserved by tradition. We know nothing of the time, or circumstances of their utterance. But they are characteristic of the Teacher. His life assumes their truth, and illustrates it every day, and his death sets it forth in the strongest light. To receive is a blessing, if the thing received be good, and it be received rightly, and for what it is. But to give is more blessed. In receiving, the direction of the thought is apt to be inward, towards self, centring attention on this me, who is enriched. In giving, it is the other way. Thought and desire flow in the opposite direction, leading out from this me, - who is likely to be too much remembered. In the one case the lines of motion all tend to one point, narrowing to a centre. In the other they go widening from centre to circumference. If there is a blessing in having the empty cup filled from the fountain, there is greater blessing in possessing the fountain which fills the cup, - and still flows for other cups afterwards.
