Generosity: Proverbs 11:25

Proverbs 11:25  A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

Generosity links with grace and love.  We can use the word instead of grace:

2 Corinthians 8:9  For you know the GENEROSITY of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

You see, grace is linked with spiritual riches.  The opposite word would be something like mean-spirited.

An old word for generosity is “largesse” – seems to mean what it says!

I am so glad to know every day that God is generous, gracious towards me.  Oh that I may learn to be generous in every way, more and more. Such a path brings daily refreshment.
