“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; and to prefer sharing all that we have with others to withholding the same from them 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
