Generosity

3rd May 2017

This week I have been reading Proverbs. This is a wisdom book that is found in the Old Testament. It is a collection of short or pithy sayings, stating God’s truth or wisdom and they cover all aspects of life…

One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.
A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
Proverbs 11:24-25 The NIV Bible

These two proverbs speak about generosity. If someone is generous and gives freely then Proverbs says that they will be given more and be refreshed. That is in contrast to somebody who holds back from giving, they will become poor and not prosper! I believe this can applied to many areas of life: money, time and possessions to name just three! If we have a generous heart and attitude then in God’s economy we too will be blessed and we will feel good! So how do you live? Are you a generous giver?
