Generous Living

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Proverbs 14:21; Proverbs 14:31

"Whoever despises his neighbor is a sinner, but blessed is he who is generous to the poor" (Proverbs 14:21).

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

I love that God doesn't look down and make judgments about us and treat us differently based on our economic or social status. He loves and cares for every single person, and He expects us to do the same.

What do Proverbs 14:21 and 31 reveal about how God loves and values people? Would you describe yourself as someone who is generous to and honoring of the poor? When you see someone in need--a person with a sign asking for help, someone standing by an old, broken down vehicle on the side of the road, a woman counting out change to purchase only a handful of grocery items because she doesn't have enough funds for more--how do you respond? Will you join me in being generous (whatever that means in the situation) to those we see in need this week? Tami

Just what I needed to hear!
God loves and cares for every single person.He loves us all!
He expects me to do the same!
I am not generous enough.
To be honest, we usually don't stop to help because we are not mechanics,we do call 911 when we see a family needing help.

Yes, I pray and ask the Lord to show me someone who is in need this week!
