TOPIC: But We Can Be Generous
Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done.
Proverbs 19:17, NIV
Recommended Reading: 1 Timothy 6:17-19
The Bible tells us to be generous. That’s critical to our calling as believers. But no government can ensure that everyone has exactly the same amount of assets. Every attempt to create a level economy has pushed people into poverty with only its leaders living in luxury. Shared wealth does not bring unity. It creates envy and resentment, and ultimately causes socialism to fail.
We can’t control the governments of the world. That isn’t our job. But we can be generous!
I could have become president of the United States and [my mother] would have said the same thing: “What are you doing for the Lord?”
