One of my favorite Bible verses about charity and giving is, “One who is gracious to a poor man lends to the Lord, And He will repay him for his good deed.” (Proverbs 19:17) Just ponder this for a moment: yes we can “give to the Lord” and He will “repay” us according to our generosity. This sheds new light on the popular verse that we “reap what we sow,” doesn’t it? 🙂

A Heart of Giving

“Tis the season for giving, right? This year has come with unprecedented difficulty and strife on a worldwide level that has shaken our nation and communities to their very core. As believers, it’s hard not to help but to find glimmers of hope and light as we barrel ahead to the peak of the holiday season and the start of a much welcomed New Year.

It’s no coincidence that the two prominent holidays most associated with light and joy, Christmas and Hanukkah, both happen at the darkest time of the year. As Christians, we have a responsibility to spread our light to others who are in need of cheer at this time of year.

When it comes to charity and giving, there are undoubtedly year-round opportunities for an individual, family, or organization, whom many of us know have immediate needs. Helping someone with the good gifts God has blessed us with is a very authentic and tangible way to fulfill these needs and brings honor to our Messiah.

The need and opportunity are often amplified during the holiday season, as many families are unable to provide basic necessities such as food or hygiene products for themselves and their loved ones. There are also many children who are not in a position to receive even a simple gift of something that might be on their “wishlist” of happiness.

May these Bible verses about Charity and Giving speak to your heart and if you are able to give, please do. If you are not and are in need, do not be ashamed of asking for a helping hand. May you be abundantly blessed in return!
