With today's Bible Minute, we look at the blessing of generosity.
Proverbs 22:9 says, "He who has a generous eye will be blessed, For he gives of his bread to the poor." That is to say, the more generous I am with what God entrusts to me, the more blessed I am; and blessed means "happy" in the Bible.
Proverbs 28:27: "He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses." Now, there are lots of ways for you and me to use the funds that God gives us. None of them, though, is any more meaningful than when we see a need, and we say, "God provided for me, so that I could provide for that need."
So, how about it? Are you ready to be more generous? For more resources, come to backtothebible.org.
