Leading Generously

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Nehemiah 5:14-19; Proverbs 14:31; Proverbs 19:17

One of the qualities of a good leader (and remember, we're all leaders in some manner) is having a heart attitude that is caring and generous towards others. Nehemiah certainly modeled this. No matter what situation he was in, he was intentional about assessing the needs of the people around him and then helping with and providing for those needs as he was able. Nehemiah's generous lifestyle was, without a doubt, pleasing to God.

"Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him" (Proverbs 14:31).

"Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will repay him for his deed" (Proverbs 19:17).

On a scale of 1-10, where would you rank yourself when it comes to being generous (lending a helping hand, offering a listening ear, helping someone financially, etc.)? Why do you choose, or what motivates you, to be generous? How do we benefit when we choose to live and lead generously? Tami

I need to see and do what God wants me to be more generous with my time,talents,and $$

Nehemiah was saw and was sensitive to the needs of his people.
