|A generous man will himself be blessed, |
for he shares his food with the poor.
|He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor. |
|He who is generous will be blessed, |
For he gives some of his food to the poor.
|Proverbs 22:9 |
The generous man is blessed in showing benevolence to others. By sharing his substance with the poor, he gains present happiness and future reward.
