DEVOTIONAL: God Blesses A Sincere and Generous Heart

Proverbs 22:9 He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor

Mark 12:41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.43 And He called unto Him His Disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

I have a sweet friend who thought I could use some specific things for when I host potluck meals at the house. Although she is not a woman of great means, she considered me and used her limited resources to help meet a need. From what I understand, and of no surprise to me, that is typical for her.

As I mentioned over Christmas, my mom would send out baked goods to family and friends as gifts. She volunteered many places over the years and helped me with my children whenever I needed . My precious mother used what she had, investing time and talents to bless others.

Prayer

Father God
Thanks, Almighty God
For this day You’ve given us

As You bless us, Lord
Please give us opportunity and willingness to extend generosity to others

In the Name of Jesus, Who gave all He had for us,
AMEN

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
