Verse Of The Day : A generous person will be enriched, and the one who provides water for others will be satisfied. Proverbs 11:25

Thought Of The Day : No one can outgive God. And those who generously give to others, God will give to them in due time.

LISTEN : God is generous to the generous. He gives plentifully to those who give plentifully to others. God blesses those who readily give more than expected to others. He waters those who water others. Our theme verse says,

“A generous person will be enriched,
and the one who provides water for others will be satisfied.”

Proverbs 11:25

With God, everyone will reap what he or she had sown (Galatians 6:7). Beloved, be liberal in your approach to life. God gives generously and wants us to do same too. He wants us to show kindness to others. He wants us to freely give or share what we have with others. He wants us to give more than enough as occasion demands. That’s what it means to be generous. My dear, God blesses those who bless others. As a matter of fact, no one can outgive God. The Bible says,

Indeed, he who did not spare his own Son,
but gave him up for us all – how will he not
also, along with him, freely give us all things?

Romans 8:32

God gave the greatest gift in Jesus Christ. Therefore, no one can outgive him. Besides, He gives freely to those who give freely and share what they have with others. And he will provide abundantly for those who provide abundantly for others. When you show kindness to others, God will show kindness to you. You can’t work for God and have everything work against you. God can’t fail to supply to you, if you can’t fail to supply to those in need. My dear, what God gives to you is not just for you alone, but for humanity. God said to Abraham,

“And I will make of you a great nation,
and I will bless you, and make your
name great; and you shall be a blessing.”

Genesis 12:2

God blessed Abraham so that through him others would be blessed. My dear, your blessing is for the good of humanity. In fact, what you can sacrifice for the well-being of others is what life can sacrifice for your own well-being. So, be generous! If you make your life a blessing you will continue to receive God’s blessings. Be wise!

What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Readily bless others with what you have no matter what.
2. Determine to obey, love and worship God and serve others with what you have.
3. Always make sacrifices for the well-being of others and God will make sacrifices for you.
4. Determine to be a blessing to others and live to the glory of God.

Prayer : Almighty God, You are worthy to be praised. Thank You for blessing me. I pray that You make me a blessing to others as long as I live, in Jesus’ name, amen.

A Word Of Blessing : Today I speak on your life, may God bless you, and make you a blessing now and forever, amen

Reflection : Be generous! The real meaning of life can be discovered in what you can do for others, and not just what you can get from them.

Quote : Standing with God causes us to stand firm, and working for him causes him to work for and through us.
