When You Give, You Get Even More

Proverbs 11 24

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 11:24

One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.

When it comes to our finances God’s way differs from man’s way. The worldly way of thinking when it comes to money is to make it, save it and keep it. But we all know you can’t take it with you. God’s way is to tithe, be generous to God’s work and give liberally to the poor. Everything we have comes from God and we’re merely managers of it. The more you give, the more God gives to you and you become richer in wealth and more blessed by God. True wealth is measured by what’s in your heart not by what’s in your wallet.

Trust in the Lord with All Your Heart

Proverbs 3 5 b

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

 

There are going to be times when you say, “God, I don’t understand why this is happening.”  That’s when you must learn to accept that you will not always understand everything God is doing. That’s when you just have to trust that God has a plan and that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Life is not always going to be easy but if you learn to trust God with all your heart you will have peace, joy and happiness in this life.

A Joyful Heart

Proverbs 17 22.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 17:22

A joyful heart is good medicine.

 

Feeling joy in ordinary things isn’t as hard as it seems.  To find joy in your life focus on the good and be grateful for what you have. It’s not happy people who are thankful, it’s thankful people who are happy.   Give thanks to the Lord for in his presence is fullness of joy.

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.

True Beauty

Proverbs 31 30.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:30

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

 

Outer beauty is only skin deep and won’t last forever. The world wants you to think that our outer beauty is the most important thing and we must chase after it.  But a truly beautiful woman puts God first, she puts her relationship with God above all else. She knows that the way God sees her is more important than how the world sees her.

Life’s Instruction Manual

proverbs 3 1-2

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:1-2

Do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.

 

People often joke about life not coming with a manual or instructions.  It actually does, it’s called The Holy Bible.  If we live our lives according to God’s commands, we can avoid many problems and live a long, peaceful and prosperous life.  Even better than that, we can live forever in heaven.

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.
