i have been doing crosspoint church's 30 days of proverbs. i have realized i love the proverbs! they are so practical. i loved yesterdays:

A generous man will himself be blessed,
for he shares his food with the poor. -Prov. 22:5

my roommate and i were thinking about this yesterday, when two little girls came to the door raising money for Haiti through their school program. we realized how faithful the Lord is to us, and how little we have to complain about. i was thinking about it in reference to yesterday's blog, i have been trying to be better with my budget, and it dawned on me WHY. this month, i was able to give above ten percent of my income to haiti, through world vision and samaritan's purse. i realized thepurpose of saving and spending wisely, is that i have the ability to give freely. what a revelation that was. and how freeing to see how being a wise steward lets me a be a generous giver. and what a Faithful God, who is patient when i am so dense to learn this simple truths!

Exodus 34:6

And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, "The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
