Verse of the Day: The Generous Will Prosper

June 1, 2007


24 Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything.
25 The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.
26 People curse those who hoard their grain, but they bless the one who sells in time of need.

Proverbs 11:24-26 (NLT)

From the Nelson Study Bible:

These proverbs should shape our attitudes toward wealth: It should be shared. Stinginess may lead to poverty. Generosity has the opposite effect. Selfishness is foolish because it only creates enemies and dishonors God.
