Generosity Keeps You Healthy Many people think the Bible is only filled with commands labeled "Thou shalt not" They assume the Bible is all about restrictions and making you lead a boring life. But God wants you to live a joy-filled, healthy life. Giving generously is good for my health. Every time I'm generous, every time I'm giving, it improves my health. You know there are more promises in the Bible about giving than anything else because God wants you to be like him. God is a giver. Everything you have is a gift from God -- He's generous and he wants you to be generous too. The Bible says, "A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed." (Proverbs 11:25 NIV) Doesn't that verse just make you smile? There's a reason why it always feels good to help others, whether you're giving financially, giving materially, or giving of your time.
“The liberal soul shall be made fat: And he that watereth shall be watered also himself.”
Proverbs 11:25 KJV
