Proverbs 11:25

THE OUTWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
The Rewards of Giving

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

Proverbs 11:25 says, A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed (NIV). This is an encouraging reminder that not only the receiver, but also the giver are blessed in the act of giving. It should be a great comfort to know that when we bestow emotional, spiritual, and material blessings on others, we actually gain back a proportionate blessing in the process. Think back on the most meaningful gift you have ever given. Most likely, you will immediately be able to remember how that gift impacted you. The way to riches in this life is not found in what you accumulate for yourself, but in what you share with others. Think about it.
