Scripture Lesson: Proverbs 11:24-25
On this date in 2001 the Mets donate their day’s pay which totals almost $500,000 from tonight’s game with the Braves at Shea Stadium to a fund for the families of firefighters and policemen killed in the World Trade Center. This is the first game played in New York since 9-11.
The writer of Proverbs gives us once again some very wise advice. He tells us that those of us who give freely will be given even more, while those who hold back in giving will face poverty. We cannot out give God. When there is a need around us, God expects us to give. Whether it is money or our time and talents, God loves to see His people respond to the needs of others. One of the biggest blessings we can receive this side of heaven is to be able to give to others to meet their needs. May we be ready to give what we can when we see a need around us!
1. Why is it important to give to others?
2. What happens to a generous man?
3. I want to challenge each of us today to try to out give God by meeting the needs of someone today!
When we attempt to meet the needs of someone else we are doing exactly what Jesus would be doing!
