but another withholds more than he should and comes to poverty.

A generous person will be enriched,

and the one who provides water for others will himself be satisfied.

Proverbs 11:24-25

 

3

“Bring the entire tithe into the storehouse so that there may be food in my temple. Test me in this matter,” says

the Lord who rules over all, “to see if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until

there is no room for it all.

Malachi 3:10

 

4

Send your grain overseas,

for after many days you will get a return.

Divide your merchandise among seven or even eight investments,

for you do not know what calamity may happen on earth.

Ecclesiastes 11:1-2

 

5

Give, and it will be given to you: A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be poured into your

you did it for me.’

Matthew 25:40

 

9

For I do not say this so there would be relief for others and suffering for you, but as a matter of equality. At the present

time, your abundance will meet their need, so that one day their abundance may also meet your need, and thus there may

be equality, as it is written:

“The one who gathered much

did not have too much,

and the one who gathered little

did not have too little.”

2 Corinthians 8:13-15

opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who belong to the family of faith.

Galatians 6:9-10

 

11

You will be enriched in every way so that you may be generous on every occasion, which is producing through us

thanksgiving to God, because the service of this ministry is not only providing for the needs of the saints but is also

overflowing with many thanks to God.

12

Now God who provides seed for the sower and bread for food will provide and multiply your supply of seed and will cause

the harvest of your righteousness to grow.

2 Corinthians 9:10

13

My point is this: The person who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the person who sows generously will also reap

generously. Each one of you should give just as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, because

God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:6-7

 

14

And God is able to make all grace overflow to you so that because you have enough of everything in every way at all times,

you will overflow in every good work. Just as it is written, “He has scattered widely, he has given to the poor; his

righteousness remains forever.”

2 Corinthians 9:8-9

 

15

Now we make known to you, brothers and sisters, the grace of God given to the churches of Macedonia, that during a

severe ordeal of suffering, their abundant joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in the wealth of their

generosity. For I testify, they gave according to their means and beyond their means. They did so voluntarily, begging us

with great earnestness for the blessing and fellowship of helping the saints. And they did this not just as we had hoped, but

they gave themselves first to the Lord and to us by the will of God. Thus we urged Titus that, just as he had previously

begun this work, so also he should complete this act of kindness for you.

2 Corinthians 8:1-6

 

16

But as you excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, and in all eagerness and in the love from us that is in

you – make sure that you excel in this act of kindness too.

2 Corinthians 8:7-8

 

17

For if the eagerness is present, the gift itself is acceptable according to whatever one has, not according to what he does

not have.

2 Corinthians 8:12

 

18

Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For by the standard you judge you will be judged, and the measure you use will

be the measure you receive.

Christ and the generosity of your sharing with them and with everyone. And in their prayers on your behalf they long for you

because of the extraordinary grace God has shown to you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!

2 Corinthians 9:13-15

 

20

Contribute to the needs of the saints, pursue hospitality.

Romans 12:13

 

21

Do not withhold good from those who need it,

when you have the ability to help.

Do not say to your neighbor, “Go! Return tomorrow

and I will give it,” when you have it with you at the time.

Proverbs 3:27-28

 

22

Sow your seed in the morning,

and do not stop working until the evening;

for you do not know which activity will succeed –

whether this one or that one, or whether both will prosper equally.

Ecclesiastes 11:6

 

23

If the clouds are full of rain, they will empty themselves on the earth,

and whether a tree falls to the south or to the north, the tree will lie wherever it falls.

He who watches the wind will not sow,

and he who observes the clouds will not reap.

will shout for joy when they reap the harvest.

The one who weeps as he walks along, carrying his bag of seed,

will certainly come in with a shout of joy, carrying his sheaves of grain.

Psalms 126:5-6

 

28

And we have different gifts according to the grace given to us. If the gift is prophecy, that individual must use it in

proportion to his faith. If it is service, he must serve; if it is teaching, he must teach; if it is exhortation, he must exhort; if it

is contributing, he must do so with sincerity; if it is leadership, he must do so with diligence; if it is showing mercy, he must

do so with cheerfulness.

Romans 12:6-8

 

29

The one who steals must steal no longer; rather he must labor, doing good with his own hands, so that he may have

something to share with the one who has need.

Ephesians 4:28

 

30

If we sowed spiritual blessings among you, is it too much to reap material things from you? If others receive this right from

you, are we not more deserving?

But we have not made use of this right. Instead we endure everything so that we may not be a hindrance to the gospel of

Christ.

1 Corinthians 9:11-12

 

31

But all the evil and worthless men among those who had gone with David said, “Since they didn’t go with us, we won’t give

them any of the loot we retrieved! They may take only their wives and children. Let them lead them away and be gone!”

But David said, “No! You shouldn’t do this, my brothers. Look at what the Lord has given us! He has protected us and has

delivered into our hands the raiding party that came against us. Who will listen to you in this matter? The portion of the one

who went down into the battle will be the same as the portion of the one who remained with the equipment! Let their

portions be the same!”

From that time onward it was a binding ordinance for Israel, right up to the present time.

1 Samuel 30:22-25

The Peace Prayer

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, the truth;
Where there is doubt, the faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

The Little Bible

For God so loved the world,

that he gave his only begotten Son,

that whosoever believeth in him

should not perish,

but have everlasting life.

 

Jn 3:16 KJV

The Golden Rule

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

 

Matthew 7:12 KJV

The Romans Road to salvation

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Rom 10:9-13 KJV

Do not be anxious

Do not be anxious about anything.

Instead, in every situation,

through prayer and petition

with thanksgiving,

tell your requests to God.

And the peace of God that

surpasses all understanding

will guard your hearts

and minds in Christ Jesus.

 

Phi 4:6-7 NET Bible

The Lord´s Prayer

Our Father which art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come.

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, and the power,

and the glory, for ever. Amen.

 

Mat 6:9-13 KJV

But if...

But if we confess our sins,

he is faithful and righteous,

forgiving us our sins and

cleansing us from all unrighteousness.

 

1 Jo 1:9 NET Bible

Suffering, cheerful or sick?

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

James 5:13-16 NKJV
