A Generous Follow Up
In my devotions this morning, I came across Proverbs 19:17, which I thought was a great follow up to my earlier post about Killing Generosity.
The verse says, “Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.” As with anything we do, we should view our generosity and our giving to the needy as an act of service to the Lord.
God repays us for our generosity. It may or may not be with material wealth, but we do receive great joy from our giving, which is a gift in and of itself from God. We also store up eternal rewards that God will bestow on us some day.
