Be Generous

Proverbs 11 25

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 11:25

A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.

 

Be kind and generous to others because God has been kind and generous to you.  When you’re generous to the poor God will always make sure you are taken care of.  Trust in God’s promises and help those in need.

Do It with Love

Proverbs 31 20.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:20

She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

 

As godly women who love the Lord we should aspire to help the poor and needy.  That doesn’t mean we all have to do extraordinary things.  Sometimes, it’s simply a kind word or a sincere gesture.  Each of you should do what God puts in your heart to do and do it with love.

Live at Peace

Romans 12 18

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:18

If possible, to the best of your ability, live at peace with all people.

 

We cannot control what other people do, but we certainly can control our own actions and responses.  It may not always be easy, but it will be worth it to try to live peacefully with others, especially those who are difficult to deal with. Do your part to be kind and leave it in God’s hands.

Kind Words

Proverbs 16 24.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 16:24

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

 

Let’s make an effort to encourage the people around us, especially the people we love and care about most.  Kindness doesn’t cost a thing yet it’s so valuable.  We can build each other up with loving and kind words that promote hope and courage.  A kind word can change someone’s entire day. Encourage love and kindness for they are never wasted in God’s eyes.

Showing Kindness to Your Enemy

Proverbs 25 21-22.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 25:21-22

If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.  In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.

 

Have you ever heard the expression “kill them with kindness”?  It means to put an end to anger and bitterness by showing kindness and generosity. As metals are melted by heaping coals upon them, so is the heart softened by kindness. (Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary) The more you treat your enemy with unexpected kindness and generosity the more they will see the same love, forgiveness, mercy and grace that the Lord shows you.

Love Is Not Rude    

Luke 6 31

 

Verse of the Day: Luke 6:31

Do to others as you would have them do to you.

 

Love is not rude.   No one likes to be around a rude, impolite, ill-mannered or unpleasant person. When we’re the one being rude we may not see it as such a big deal.  Oh, but when someone is being rude to us it is a very big deal.  The bottom line is we need to treat others, especially our spouse, the way we would like to be treated, with kindness.
