Generous and Compassionate    

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 as well. We serve a compassionate God and this creates a compassionate heart in us. The awesome thing is that when we give to others from our heart God blesses us even more.  We can never out give God.

Love One Another

John 13 35

 

Verse of the Day:  John 13:35

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

 

When you have the love of God in your heart it shows. Your love for God is not seen in your outward appearance but in the way you treat others. If you truly have the love of God in your heart you will show it by being kind, generous and loving to those who need to see God’s love through you.

Kill Them with Kindness

Proverbs 25 21-22

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 25:21-22

If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.  In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.

 

Have you ever heard the expression “kill them with kindness”?  It means to put an end to anger and bitterness by showing kindness and generosity. The more you treat your enemy with unexpected kindness and generosity the more they will see the same love, forgiveness, mercy and grace that the Lord shows you.

More Blessed to Give

1 12-7 1 Acts 20 35.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Acts 20:35

In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

 

God has given us more than we could ever deserve and we should follow his example of giving. When we give to the weak we are spreading God’s love and hope into the hearts of those who receive the gift. When you give in a right spirit it truly is an act of worship and pleases the Lord. Let’s not forget that God gives to us so that we may be generous to others.  This Christmas lets focus on giving rather than receiving.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 7:  Thankful for God’s Blessings

1 11-20 1 2 Corinthians 9 11

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 9:11

You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

 

I am thankful for all of God’s blessings.  He always provides and makes a way for us to also be a blessing to others.  He wants us to be generous by sharing what we have with people less fortunate, not just at Thanksgiving but all year long.  He blesses us so we can generously pour out our blessings to others, which results in thanksgiving to God.

Know Your Worth

1 9-26 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:10

A wife of noble character who can find?  She is worth far more than rubies.

 

Your worth is found on the inside not on the outside.  Your character is worth more than fleeting beauty.  Nobel characteristics like honesty, generosity, and courage are more important than your dress size, bank account, or looks.  Your worth is found in God and your relationship with him, not in the opinions of others.  Jesus paid the ultimate price for you because you are worth far more than rubies.
