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. Hence, those who give to others, God will give to them in due time.
LISTEN : God blesses us to bless others. What He gives is for the blessings of humanity and glory of His name. We are called to be generous; and God blesses the generous. He waters those who water others. In Him, we reap what we sow. Therefore, we should be liberal in our approach to life. God gives generously and wants us to give generously too. He wants us to show concern and 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. No one can outgive God. Hence, those who give to others will have God give to them in due time. God gives freely to those who give freely and share what they have with others. He will provide abundantly for those who provide abundantly for others. When you show kindness and concern for others, God will show concern and 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.”
God blessed Abraham so that through him others would be blessed. My dear, we are created to obey and worship God, and to love and serve one another. As a matter of fact, the true meaning of life can be discovered in what you can do for others and not what you can get from them. Amazingly, the irony of life is that, what you can sacrifice for the well-being of others is what life can sacrifice for your own well-being. What you give, you’ll receive. So, be generous! If you make your life a blessing you will continue to receive God’s blessings. Be wise!

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.
