Thankful for a generous heart!

Scripture reading for July 14th:  Proverbs 7-11

Key Scriptures:  Proverbs 11:24-26  “One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.  A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.  People curse the man who hoards grain, but blessing crowns him who is willing to sell.”  

God’s wisdom is the opposite of what the world thinks.  The world thinks that when we give, it is gone for good.  God says that the generous man will prosper and those that refresh others will themselves be refreshed.  Those that give gain even more.  Giving is a spiritual character trait that is like the heart of our Father, the ultimate giver!  When we give, we reflect God’s heart and He blesses that!  It takes faith to give and trust God for His promised return.  Without faith, you can’t please Him!

Blessed by generosity:  “Give, and it will be given to you.  A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.  For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”  (Luke 6:38)
