He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, And He will pay back what he has given. (Proverbs 19:17 NKJV)
Everything you have God has graciously given to you. God has richly blessed you. Look around and consider the wealth, which flows far beyond money and possessions, the love of your family and friends, the health of your mind and body, the beauty of your surroundings.
God loves your tender heart and your benevolent spirit. When you give generously, you honor God. When you give of yourself through acts of service and return your tithe to the Father, He will pour out His blessings on you.
He is ever merciful, and lends; And his descendants are blessed. (Psalms 37:26 NKJV)
But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you —see that you also excel in this grace of giving. (2 Corinthians 8:7 NIV)
