Pursue Generosity 9.27.11

Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. Proverbs 11: 24,25

It seems backwards, but in reality generosity secures increase, while hoarding does the opposite of it’s intended purpose…setting the stage for loss. God created money. He controls who it goes to and in what amounts… His purpose with money is that it would bless people so that they can in turn bless others…thus being an earthly representation of gods providing and generous character. A loving father would not give his son more of something that he is currently not faithfully stewarding, so it makes sense that generosity is the heart condition god is looking for. Action. My sons, Always be generous with money and resources focusing on the needs of others as great than your own…it is at this point that money becomes a true blessing. Be scared of hoarding because that is when money starts becoming a curse and a cause for great anxiety.
