Generous: What God Says About Generosity
Blessed Are Those Who Are Generous
I’ve compiled a list of some of the Bible verses discussing how God feels about us being generous. We are called to help our fellow brothers and sisters. Whether they be another church member or a homeless addict. We are to treat them the same. The bible says we will be repaid in full what we give. Don’t be stingy or you will lose everything. Give with an open and joyful heart. The generous will prosper!
You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. As the Scriptures say,
“They share freely and give generously to the poor.
Their good deeds will be remembered forever.”
2 Corinthians 9: 7-9
Blessed are those who are generous,
because they feed the poor.
Good comes to those who lend money generously
and conduct their business fairly.
Give freely and become more wealthy;
be stingy and lose everything.
The generous will prosper;
those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.
Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.
1 Timothy 6:18
If you help the poor, you are lending to the Lord—
and he will repay you!
Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.
As a result of your ministry, they will give glory to God. For your generosity to them and to all believers will prove that you are obedient to the Good News of Christ.
2 Corinthians 9:13
But generous people plan to do what is generous,
and they stand firm in their generosity.
Instead, be generous and lend them whatever they need.
The wicked borrow and never repay,
but the godly are generous givers.
Light shines in the darkness for the godly.
They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.

All proceeds will go to maintaining and growing our outreach to reach as many lost souls as we can. As well as, assisting, giving, and volunteering within the community to help those less fortunate. All of this isn’t possible without you. I ask if God places it on your heart to give, to pray over it, and give with a joyful heart knowing it will be helping grow His kingdom. More than ever Christians need the support of fellow believers.
We often are more inclined to spend $5 on coffee that’s gone in moments than to help grow God’s ministries. Do your part by helping your community. If you are unable to assist financially many are always in need of volunteers. There are so many ways to give and I think you’ll be amazed at how fulfilled you will be. You are going to reach and help more sinners outside the church than you ever will inside the church. We are all called to witness and spread the gospel. Don’t grow complacent in your church pew. Get out there and save someone’s life today. You’ve got God and God’s got this!
