Philippians 4:14-20. Proverbs 11:17. “The kind and generous man benefits himself.” In Philippians 4:14-20 the apostle Paul gives insight into six specific ways you will benefit when you’re a giver and not a taker in life. In fact Paul the promise that “…God will take care of everything you need,…” v.19 is tied to generosity. On further reflection we see that this letter Paul wrote to the Philippians is really all about joy and generosity. When we are generous 1. others are grateful. 2. It shows what I value most, and 3. You become more like Jesus.
