Proverbs 11:25 TEV. Be generous, and you will be prosperous. Help others, and you will be helped.
The message is clear to those who are rich and able to give more. While nothing prohibits even the poor to share the little they have. Choose to do what is right. Follow the Lord’s way. Be a blessing and you will be blessed. God loves a cheerful giver! Love is almost always expressed thru giving and sharing what we have to others – not necessarily our family only.
1 TIMOTHY 6:17-18 New Living Translation
Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life.
MATTHEW 6:20 New Living Translation
Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.
MATTHEW 5:42 New Living Translation
Give to those who ask, and don’t turn away from those who want to borrow.
LUKE 3:11 New Living Translation
John replied, “If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry
LUKE 12:33 New Living Translation
“Sell your possessions and give to those in need. This will store up treasure for you in heaven! And the purses of heaven never get old or develop holes. Your treasure will be safe; no thief can steal it and no moth can destroy it..”
PROVERBS 11:28 English Standard Version
Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.
PROVERBS 21:25-26 New Living Translation
Despite their desires, the lazy will come to ruin, for their hands refuse to work. Some people are always greedy for more, but the godly love to give!
PSALM 112:5 New Living Translation
Good comes to those who lend money generously and conduct their business fairly.
PSALM 37:21 New Living Translation

All glory to God!
