“The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11:25, NLT)

This is a win-win for all of us: Prosper through our own generosity, and assure our own refreshment by helping others!

Now, all that is left for us to do is to get out there and do it — and be it!  Yea!!!  – Luther

 “And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”  (Hebrews 13:16, NIV)

Of course, it is a sacrifice to do the right thing, because doing so means forsaking the privileges and benefits to which we feel entitled.

Of course, it is a sacrifice to share.  It means making do with less of something we, deep-down, want more of; or we think of some others as less worthy of our time, talent, and treasure.

Nevertheless, we are reminded that to pursue goodness, mercy, kindness, and love in all of our relationships.  Also, we are to share what we have with others.  Doing so pleases God.

So, go ahead: Do the things that make our heavenly Father smile.  There is no shame in goodness; and it is through giving that we receive.  – Luther
