Proverbs 22:9 - A generous man will himself be blessed

NIV A generous man will himself be blessed,
for he shares his food with the poor.
KJV He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.
NASB He who is generous will be blessed,
For he gives some of his food to the poor.

The generous man is blessed in showing benevolence to others. By sharing his substance with the poor, he gains present happiness and future reward.
