The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself.  Proverbs 11:25

I love water. I always have. I like to see it falling from a waterfall or fountain. I especially like it since I have allergies, and my mouth gets so dry. I always liked to swim as a child, and they called me” the mermaid” at swimming lessons because I was always under water. Of course our scripture today means so much more than the actual cool, wet, liquidy “thing” but it can be seem as that “thing” as well.

I told my husband years ago that I thought this was his life verse because it so exemplified who he is. He was blessed, but he didn’t see himself in it. Which is another reason why I thought it was for him. Those who think of others more than themselves are always blessed in one way or another.

God is glorified in our selfless, acts of love, which is one important reason why we are here, on this planet, at this specific time. Our world is more angry, and hostile than ever. So, the acts of kindness shine ever more brightly! Don’t you agree?
