A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed (Proverbs 11:25). There's no question that God wants to bless us; the Bible is full of such promises. But, first, God wants us to learn to give. That's the key to the Law of the Harvest: you give first, receive later. Let us think for a moment how this may apply to our finances and think about how it applies to other areas of life. There is so much you can give to others. For example, you can give your family an uplifting start to each new day. Even if you wake up in a rotten mood, you can speak words of encouragement and thoughtfulness (or at least put a lid on your complaints), so that everyone else in the house has the chance to begin the day pleasantly. The same goes for your employees, staff and everyone else that crosses your path. To improve your attitude, see Philippians 4:8.
Let us practice grace and generosity. Regardless of the kind of day you're having, freely give a good day to everyone else. Offer encouragement. Share a compliment. Say what you have to say with gentleness and kindness. Give them hope. It won't just change the direction of your day; it will change the direction of your life. A kind man benefits himself, but a cruel man brings himself harm (Proverbs 11:17).
