Proverbs -- We Are Blessed as We Bless Others

He who is generous will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor (Proverbs 22:9)            

As God's children care for others, God cares for them. We are blessed in many different ways as we care for others. Many verses in Proverbs encourage generosity (Proverbs 11:24; 28:27; 29:7, 14). God loves a cheerful giver (2 Cor. 9:7), and Jesus said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive," (Acts 20:35) for in the very "act" of giving you are blessed!
