What type of generosity do you give?

Updated on March 20, 2012

Let's be generous with our giving

Let's be generous with Godly generousity


A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.
Proverbs 22:9, New International Version


How generous are you?


Yes there is the generosity of giving freely and gladly to help the poor people, but there is also the generosity of forgiving others. Do you freely forgive others when they do you wrong? Or do you want your pound of flesh? When we forgive others we in turn will be forgiven when we do wrong.


Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.
Henry Ward Beecher


Are you generous with sympathy and concern for others when they are enduring a difficult time? If someone is sick, do you visit them at their home and bring some food for their family?


A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles. Washington Irving


When someone’s loved one had died do you offer comfort and compassion or do you turn away? If you see someone hurt, say on the subway or playground, do you turn away or do you run to help?


He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done.
Proverbs 19:17, New International Version


"You people that hear me, listen! Think carefully about the things you hear. The way you give is the way God will give to you. But God will give you more than you give."
Mark 4:23-24 (English Revised Version)


Prayer: Oh magnificent and glorious God, You who have so freely be so generous with me, please instill in me a heart that happily gives unto others . It helps them, brings praise to You and makes my heart dance for joy when You present these opportunities to me. In the name of the greatest gift You have given us Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day
