Generosity

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.  Not only does He bless us with earthly blessing but He also blesses us spiritually. Be generous to those in need and do everything in love. No matter how much we give we can never out give God.

Heavenly Father, thank You for being so generous to me. I am so grateful for each and every one of the blessing You have bestowed upon me. Teach me to be generous to those in need and to give with a cheerful heart so that You may be glorified. Amen

More Blessed to Give than to Receive

Acts 20:35

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. Many people of the world are often thinking about what they will get in return and only give when there is something in it for themselves. But children of God who strive to be Christlike give without expecting to receive anything in return for they know their reward is in heaven because when you give in a right spirit it truly is an act of worship and pleases the Lord. When we give to the weak and those in need, we are spreading God’s love and hope into the hearts of those who receive the gift. 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.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 7: Thankful for God’s Blessings

2 Corinthians 9:11

Verse of the Day:   2 Corinthians 9:11          

You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.   

This year has been a difficult year for many people. So much has happened including the Covid-19 pandemic, mandatory lock-downs, loss of life, loss of jobs, schools and churches closed, fires across the west coast, hurricanes on the east coast and civil unrest across the county just to name a few. But, through it all God is still with us and I am thankful for all of His blessings. I am thankful we have a roof over our heads, food on our table, clothes on our back and the love of God in our hearts. I am grateful because we have been blessed and we have also been able to be a blessing to others, which has resulted in thanksgiving to God. Everyone needs a blessing, especially in these turbulent times, and I believe God blesses us so we can be a blessing to others. I encourage you to be a blessing to others in any way you can whenever you can.

Know Your Worth

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:10    

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.  

You are a woman of worth because of what is found on the inside not on the outside. Your high moral standards and character are worth more than fleeting beauty. Nobel characteristics like honesty, generosity and courage are more important than your dress size, bank account or your looks. Your worth is found in God, your relationship with Him and who He says you are, not in the opinions of others. Just in case you have forgotten, you were created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27) and are the apple of His eye (Zechariah 2:8). God loves you (Jeremiah 31:3) and you are His (Isaiah 43:1). So when you doubt your self-worth remember that Jesus paid the ultimate price to save you because you are worth far more than rubies.

A Cheerful Giver

2 Corinthians 9 7

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 9:7

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Spread the love of Christ with the less fortunate this Christmas. There are a couple of weeks left until Christmas so you still have time to make a donation to a worthy cause that helps people in need. Unless you’ve been there yourself, you don’t realize what a difference a little help makes. The simple things we take for granted someone else is praying for. Follow your heart and remember that the Lord has blessed you so you can bless others. Whether it’s big or small make a donation to your favorite charity, every bit helps and makes a difference in the lives of others.
