Morning all! Prov 19.17 says “Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will repay him for his deed.”
The Christmas season is synonymous with giving and generosity which is great… because everyone loves getting gifts! What’s more important, though, is how we treat those around us, whether they are family, friends or strangers. Giving isn’t limited to items of monetary value so it’s essential that we ask God to open our eyes and increase our sensitivity to those who may need our help, in one way or another. God asks us to give of ourselves and whether that’s in the form of time and attention, a listening ear or more tangible help, we are required to give nonetheless. This verse makes it clear that God takes giving very seriously – when we help others, He sees it as us helping Him and rewards us accordingly. As we countdown to Christmas and beyond, let’s make a concerted effort to spread Christmas cheer, not just through gift giving but meeting people at their point of need, whatever that may look like. God will give us grace!
P.S. I’d also like to wish you all a very Merry CHRISTmas and an amazing New Year. This is my last post of the year so I hope you enjoy the Christmas break – TWW will be back in 2017!
