Give to The Poor

Give to The Poor

Proverbs 22:9 (KJV) He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.

Be a giver!  God’s example to us throughout the canon of scripture is about giving to others.  God gives humanity without merit.  Then so should society give to others in need without difference for their lot or position in life?  Not only does this scripture point to those who are poor in possessions and providence, but it also points to those who are poor in Spirit.

The bread mentioned here in this verse concerns generosity.  A sincere child of God is generous in his or her giving.  Liberalness in giving is a hallmark of regenerated hearts serving as the hands and feet of God to those in need in this world.  This giving does not just point to material things as in an expensive Christmas celebration with numerous gifts stuffed under the tree.  The key is to give the vital heart message concerning the one gift that can change the spiritual state of souls throughout the year, giving lost hearts the bread of life.  Also, there is nothing wrong with giving a few personal gifts to friends and family in celebrating the birth of Christ tucked under a Christmas tree on Christmas day.

Secondly, this scripture tells us that those who are bountiful with the providence of God will be blessed, and you can count on it!  God loves to give the desires of your heart until you are overflowing.  These blessings are continual; as you give to others, God will bless you abundantly too.

Bread and blessings galore flow into the life of every child of God who honors God by giving to others who are poor in spirit and in need, as the hands and feet of God in this world.
