Being Generous

In review of Psalm 112:9 it says, “They share freely and give generously to those in need. Their good deeds will be remembered forever. They will have influence and honor.”

Bottom Line:
Give generously and you will make an impact.

What this means to me:
I should give and share freely to those in need. God will bless this and I will be respected and able to impact others.

This verse is a reminder that generosity on my part will help expand my influence and the more generous I am, the more impact and influence I can make.

In this, it appears that influence will come not from what I get in life, but rather from what I will give away in life, and the more I give away, the more influential I’ll be.

Another verse in Proverbs 11:24 says, “The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller” (MSG).

Today’s verse says, “They share freely and give generously to those in need. Their good deeds will be remembered forever. They will have influence and honor” (Psalm 112:9 NLT).

In summary, Give generously to those in need and you will always be remembered. You will have influence and respect. I should never grimace, fown upon or be reluctant to be generous. Today’s verse reminds me that when my generosity goes up, my influence and impact will as well.

This morning, I thank you God for providing me with more than enough in which I can freely give. One thing I should consider is my tithing. I should really think through increasing it even a little bit so that my heart can grow bigger.
