As I have said many times before, "it is way better to give than to receive." Time to start putting some action behind the words I write.
Here are 10 of my favorite verses on giving. Enjoy.
17 For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. 18 He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the alien, giving him food and clothing.
9 A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.
7 The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.
2 Corinthians 9:6-7
6Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
1 John 3: 17-18
17 If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? 18Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
Ephesians 4:2828 He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need.
Philippians 4:1919 And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
1 Timothy 6:1818 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
Hebrews 13:1616 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
1 John 3: 17-1817 If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? 18Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
So excited to share this experience with you and see the way the Lord uses this to bless a family and show His love during this holiday season.
