Good Morning! I'm your host Lonnie Wibberding, and you are listening to Umpqua Connect. A daily devotional podcast sent out from the beautiful Umpqua Valley of Southern Oregon.

Today is Wednesday, September 30, 2020.

It's the middle of the work week, so today we are dipping into Proverbs for some wisdom to get us through.

The text today is a reminder that God blesses those who give to others. I believe He often works in supernatural ways to bless givers. But there is also some built-in blessings from giving. Things that happen naturally without supernatural intervention.

If you are a thoughtful person, caring for others, people just like you better. Us humans all like to be around people who care about us. So being a giving person just makes people like you better, and when people like you, you get opportunities you wouldn't get if they didn't.

Proverbs 11:24,25 says:

One person gives freely, yet gains even more;
    another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.

A generous person will prosper;
    whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

Short one today, but as always,

Thanks for connecting.

May God Bless your day. We'll talk again tomorrow
