We Can't Outgive God

The generous soul will be made rich.   Proverbs 11:25

The Bible teaches that blessings follow those who give liberally. Proverbs 11:25 says, "The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself."
I've heard countless testimonies from men and women who were afraid to put to the test God's promise to bless those who are generous. They feared they would not have enough. Then, when at last they decided to tithe ( to give a tenth of their income ) in accordance with the Bible's standard, they began to prosper. They discovered what countles others have know across the ages: You can't outgive God.
What keeps you from being more generous in supporting God's work? Selfishness? Fear? Insecurity? Even a sinful habit you would rather support? Whatever the reason, repent of it and discover the blessedness of generosity. Remember: "God loves a cheerful giver" (2 Cor.9:7).

When I read this it reminded me of my sister Mary Kate and her husband Kaith. They had served God so much. They have been a cheerful giver. Now God has blessed them with a brang new home and more.
