Our Daily Bread…Featuring Paul Beverly

Okla WildfiresIn times like this, when our area has seen so much destruction from the wildfires, it warms my heart to see neighbors & strangers stepping up to help. Met a young couple in their 20’s yesterday from Texas, that had brought hay from Texas to donate at a drop off spot. That was very generous, but they didn’t stop with that, they had gotten a hotel room & stuck around to reload hay & deliver directly to farmers in need. God bless people like them.

2 Corinthians 9:7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Proverbs 3:27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.

Have a giving week my friends!!!

We are meant to want to see others succeed & to help them do as much when needed, not to be self serving. We will all have ups & downs & a helping hand to lift us up & help push us will always be needed. Be the kind of friend that you would want in your life. By giving, you will be rewarded. Let’s help each other succeed.

In all you do, do it in kindness & love. Our communities & world need a lot more of this.

Hebrews 13:16 Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

Philippians 2:4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also the interests of others.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put in your lap. For the measure you use it will be measured back to you.

Love in Secret…Featuring Matt Weinreich

givingMatthew 6:1-4 “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them.  Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.  Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men.  Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.  But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret: and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.”

A true gift cannot be given without receiving. A true gift cannot be received without giving.  When I give generously, my spirit is raised knowing I have shown love to another.  When I receive, my spirit is raised knowing another loved me enough to give generously to me.

A taker cannot truly give, nor receive.  A taker takes out of fear of being taken from.  The spirit of taking wants to convert givers into takers.

This is why I believe Jesus told us to give in secret.  To give is to loveLove the other as other.   Love and release.  Love spontaneously in secret.  Leaving the other with the expectation of praise, or repayment turns that love to vanity.   Don’t allow your love to be hijacked.

We all have wants in life, but what are you willing to give? I believe you have to give freely, the same things you are wanting to receive. That goes for kindness, respect, love, all areas of life really. Being selfish will not be prosperous for long, so give unselfishly 😊

Doing what is right should be easy. But greed & selfishness fogs the brain & darkens the heart. Be content & give of yourself & you will be rewarded.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.

Proverbs 11:24-25 One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.

Proverbs 28:25 A greedy man stirs up strife, but the one who trusts in the Lord will be enriched.

Proverbs 11:24 One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

Have a selfless and giving weekend my friends!!!

In any relationship, you get out of it what you put into it. You can’t keep making withdrawals without making deposits at the bank. So why would you expect a relationship to work any different? Make sure you are building your relationship up with deposits.

Luke 6:38. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.

Have a giving day my friends!!!
