The Liberal Soul Shall Be Made Fat

Proverbs 11:25 “The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.”

I am really enjoying my time with the people of Lighthouse Baptist Church and Pastor Randy Tewell.  The church has been such a blessing to us.  I have been here at the conference since Wednesday and will be here until Sunday night.  We have been able to participate in several of services, the school Bible classes, and the soul-winning of the church.  Tonight was the international banquet and tomorrow is the final day for the conference.  The church has been treating us like royalty with great meals, a sight-seeing trip, and many special gifts.

Bro. Sam Davidson has been preaching the conference.  I have really enjoyed hearing him preach the Bible with passion and conviction.  Tonight’s message was on “3 Blessings of the Liberal Soul” from Proverbs 11:25:

  1. Giving brings blessing; keeping brings poverty (11:24).
  2. Refreshing bring refreshment (11:25).
  3. Blessing will be to the giver; cursing will be on the head of the hoarder (11:26).

I was so challenged to think about all that God has given me and about doing all I can be a blessing to those around me.  May God help us to be liberal (generous) in the giving of ourselves, our time, and our resources.

I enjoyed the night.  I look forward to tomorrow’s services.  It has been a blessing to spend time with my in-laws over the past few days.  I really look forward returning home to Northern Ireland on Monday.
