The Way of the Righteous



“…The righteous give generously”
(Psalm 37:21, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Did you know that when you give to others in need, the Bible says it’s like giving directly to God Himself? When you step out and bless other people, you are honoring and blessing the Lord. The scripture tells us to give our best, to give generously. In other words, stretch yourself. Go out of your way. It may be uncomfortable to walk over and pay for someone’s gas, but that’s being generous.

I encourage you today, look for ways to give generously and meet the needs of others. Remember, people have many different types of needs. There may be someone who needs some encouragement. Give generously when you give that encouragement. There may be someone in your life that just needs a friend; they need some quality time. Give generously of your time and pour into that person. As you give generously to others, God will multiply those seeds in your own life in return!


Heavenly Father, I come to You today giving all that I have to You. Open my eyes to the needs around me and show me how to be a blessing to others. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen



  1. A Lake Mary book publisher is suing televangelist and faith healer Benny Hinn, saying he violated a morality clause in their contract when he began an “inappropriate relationship” with another evangelist, and thus, must pay $250,000.

    In August, Hinn admitted to a friendship with evangelist Paula White after The National Enquirer published photos of them in Rome, holding hands.


  2. While giving to the needy, time, efforts and material means and saving valuable life is a better deed than attending Church but not following the scripture, one shall be mindful of the fact that it shall not result in perpetual begging. The example given of paying for gas, in most circumstances will be wrong. Making one dependent and beggar for life is not good. One can walk and it is healthy. One shall live within one’s means. Work hard and get comfortable in life is better sermon than becoming dependent. God bless us all and free us from the dependence mentality and make us better human beings, sharing with our neighbors the little joys of life, interacting and reaching out once in a while, and be there when they need us. Amen


  3. Amen.

    #2 irrelevant comment.

    #3 it does not matter how much or how often we give – if you do it cheerfully, you shall always be blessed. And if we all had to give a little and take a little, there would be enough for everyone.

    Blessed Sunday.


  4. #4 Nine Chale
    These profits(prophets) are Wolves In Sheep’s Clothing.Wolves are not sheep!

    “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15


  5. It is wrong to connect giving (helping the needy) with receiving blessings from God. Blessings come to all people: the generous and the stingy. We cannot earn Blessings from God. If you help the needy, do it because of love and care, not because “God blesses the hand that gives”.


  6. #6 Chapwa, in the same book, Paul cautions us saying: “wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” 1 Corinthians 10:12

    It is easy to point fingers and call others wolves – but are we aware that anyone, including ourselves can be in the same condition? That aswell is the devil’s strategy of keeping us from focussing on the word of God.
