(Please Note: The first 2 mins. of this recording is blank.) 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 that Paul wrote to the Philippians is really all about joy and generosity. When you are generous…4. It strengthens your faith. 5. You are investing in your eternal home. 6. You make God smile.
