7-Day Negativity Fast - Day 7
A Poverty Way of Living
Today, sacrificially give your time, energy or finances for the benefit of another.
New Living Translation (NLT)
29 Then God said, “Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food.
6 The land you have given me is a pleasant land.
What a wonderful inheritance!
24 Give freely and become more wealthy;
be stingy and lose everything.
42 Give to those who ask, and don’t turn away from those who want to borrow.
2 When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get.
38 Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.
35 and bring the money to the apostles to give to those in need.
2 Corinthians 9:7-9
7 You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” 8 And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 9 As the Scriptures say,
“They share freely and give generously to the poor.
Their good deeds will be remembered forever.”
