The Power of a Generous Heart

A preview of May's email-only article.

Ashley Green

The Bible has quite a bit to say about generosity.

And, while this shouldn't be your primary motivation, did you know that Proverbs suggests some pretty cool things will happen to you when you give freely?

Every month I publish an exclusive article for my email subscribers, and this month we're talking about prosperity, generosity, and obesity. (Yes, you read that right.) If you'd like instant, free access, fill out the form below.

Here's a snippet:

The KJV renders Proverbs 11:25 as, "The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself."

It may be weird to think that getting fat is a reward for liberality; in the first world, we don't value fat. In fact, most everyone is obsessed with skinniness. Why?

Because in affluent cultures, it's easy to get fat.

McDonald's occupies a corner at every busy intersection, and our supermarkets have entire aisles dedicated to ice cream, cookies, and chips.

Because of this, slender figures are rarer. They are badges of youthfulness and sex appeal. Not so in other eras of history.
