Proverbs 11:3 The integrity of the upright guides them…5 The righteousness of the blameless keeps his way straight…8 The righteous is delivered from trouble…16 A gracious woman gets honor…18 One who sows righteousness gets a sure reward…

Proverbs 11: 24 One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. 25 Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered…28 Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.

Do you feel like what you have is never enough? There have been times in my life when I have held my breath as I left the grocery store, trying to make it to the car before starting to cry. Our patient, loving God reminds us gently but repeatedly how blessings work: “One who waters will be watered.” Over and over, He restates these promises that if we walk in the righteousness Jesus gave us and give with the same generosity God offers us, He will bless us. Let go of what you’re clutching in your sweaty palms and give what God is asking you to give. All those silly tears I cried—God never once let me down.

Lord, thank You, thank You, THANK YOU for reminding us over and over that we can walk in integrity and righteousness and be blessed. Help us to believe You today instead of needlessly worrying, so we can celebrate each moment we walk with You. You’re pretty awesome 🙂

Here’s a song to make your day.
