A generous heart
~If you help the poor, you are lending to the Lord--and he will repay you. Proverbs 19:17
~The sin of your sister Sodom was this: She lived with her daughters in the lap of luxury--proud, gluttonous, and lazy. They ignored the oppressed and the poor. They put on airs and lived obscene lives. And you know what happened: I did away with them. Ezekiel 16:49-50.
~She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy. Proverbs 31:20.
~But if anyone has this world's goods (resources for sustaining life) and sees his brother and fellow believer in need, yet closes his heart of compassion against him, how can the love of God live and remain in him? 1 John 3:17.
