Proverbs 11:23-25

23  The desire of the righteous ends only in good, ithe expectation of the wicked in wrath.

24  jOne gives kfreely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

25  lWhoever brings blessing mwill be enriched, and none who waters will himself be watered.

 

 

 The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2016). (Pr 11:23–25). Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles.

I have in my life lived by a principle that i will give freely as I have freely received. For years I have given, with no expectation except that God has commanded with the tugging of my heart in a desire to bless; over the years I have asked perhaps from a carnal side, why did God wants me to give when I too desire to be blessed. My wife said to me, we have no lack, and God has given me a great wife, has opened doors to new jobs, two wonderful dogs as companion, and no lack of good things, beautiful house, guitars, cars, even things down to my hobbies of photography and cycling. Truth is that I do not deserve to own these things, but God has given so freely. The desire of the righteous ends only in good when the expectation of the wicked in wrath, one gives freely, yet grows richer, another withholds suffer want. Finally an answer from God on proving my principle of life something He honours, and that’s more than enough in life. I will give freely as I have received freely.
