Generosity and Compassion

Proverbs 22 9.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 22:9

The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.

 

God is generous with us and He expects us to be generous with others. We serve a compassionate God and when we give ourselves to Him, He creates a compassionate heart in us. The awesome thing is that when we give to others from our heart God blesses us even more.  Be generous to those in need and do everything in love. Remember, we can never out give God.

Be Generous

Proverbs 3 27.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:27

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.

 

If you are in a position to be of assistance to someone don’t walk away or turn your back on them when they need your help. You are called to show God’s love, kindness and mercy to those in need. Be generous not only with your money but also with your time and talents by letting God work through you to help the destitute. He will not forget the effort and love you show them.

More Blessed to Give than to Receive

Acts 20 35.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Acts 20:35

In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

 

God has given us more than we could ever deserve and we should follow His example of giving. When we give to the weak we are spreading God’s love and hope into the hearts of those who receive the gift. When you give in a right spirit it truly is an act of worship and pleases the Lord. Let’s not forget that God gives to us so that we may be generous to others. This Christmas let’s focus on giving rather than receiving.

Generosity

Don’t say to your neighbor, “Go and come back; I’ll give it to you tomorrow,” when you have it.

 

God has been generous to us and has supplied all of our needs and therefore, we should be generous to others.  We have been blessed so we can bless others.  We’re not guaranteed tomorrow, so let’s help those we can today.  Now is always the best time to help someone in need.

Do Good

1 timothy 6 18

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Timothy 6:18

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

 

In this world money comes and money goes. To be truly rich in life do good deeds and cheerfully share what you have with those in need.  Build your treasure in heaven by doing the work of the Lord.  For example, visit the sick, feed the hungry and help others to know God, these are things that make a difference.
