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.

Generosity

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.  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.

Stand Up

1 9-27 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:8

Speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves. Protect the rights of all who are helpless. (GNT)

 

Speak up for the people who have no voice.  Stand up for the oppressed.  It is our duty to help those who cannot help themselves.  We need to go out into the world and donate our time, money and resources for the poor, needy and suffering.  We need to bring Jesus into the lives of others so they too may know the mercy, forgiveness, and love of God.
