Be Generous to the Poor

Proverbs 3 27

 

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.

God wants you to help the poor and indigent. If you have the opportunity and are able to help someone don’t walk away or turn your back on them when they need you most. God has compassion for the poor and you are called to show His 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. You have been blessed so that you may be a blessing to others and He will not forget the effort and love you show them.

Be Generous Today

Proverbs 3 28.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:28

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. Throughout the Bible God reminds us that we are to help the poor and those in need. We have been blessed so we, ourselves, can bless others. We’re not guaranteed tomorrow, let’s help the people we can today. Now is always the best time to help someone in need, tomorrow may be too late. If God puts in your heart to help someone don’t think about it, just do it.

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.

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.

Love the Unlovable

Luke 6 32.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 6:32

If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.

 

It’s easy to love someone who loves you and is good to you.  The challenge then is to love the unlovable and those who have been forgotten by society.  Start seeing them the way God sees them, love them, do good for them and pray for them.

Do It with Love

Proverbs 31 20

 

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 us should do what God puts in our heart and do it with love.

Give Hope

1 11-26 1 Psalm 9 18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 9:18

But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.

 

As we immerse ourselves in the Christmas season let’s not forget those in need.  There are so many ways we can help the poor.  Ask God to lead you in finding a way to help those in need this holiday season and throughout the year. Let God work through you as you donate your time, money, food, or services. A little goes a long way and gives so much hope to many.
