Bible Quotes

A righteous man knows the rights of the poor; a wicked man does not understand such knowledge.
(Proverbs 29:7) ESV 

Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
(Matthew 6:1-4) ESV 

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
(Matthew 6:33) ESV 

Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.
(Luke 6:38) ESV 

And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
(Luke 12:15) ESV 

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
(Acts 20:35) ESV 

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
(2 Corinthians 9:6,7) ESV 

But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?
(1 John 3:17) ESV

Cheerful and the Bible

Does attitude affect my health? "A cheerful heart does good like medicine, but a broken spirit makes one sick." Proverbs 17:22, TLB

Cheerfulness comes from the heart.
A joyful heart makes a cheerful face, But when the heart is sad, the spirit is broken. Proverbs 15:13, NASB

When you give something to God, give it willingly and cheerfully. “So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:7, NKJV

For the person with a cheerful heart, life is a continual banquet. For the dour person, each day is a day of affliction of evil. They dread getting out of bed. This person dreads each day and wonders why it is so tough for them. "All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast." Proverbs 15:15

When you choose to be cheerful you tend to have a "It can be done attitude" rather than being a wet blanket. You therefore tend to increase your efficiency, creativity and productivity...because the "Joy of the Lord is your strength." Neh 8:10

When you choose to be cheerful you make being a Christian attractive. Jesus said "Let your light shine before men." (Mat 5:16). It's called cheerful evangelism. The light shines through a cheerful heart.

Cheerfulness is indeed the characteristic of true virtue, which by no means consists in, nor encourages, sourness or moroseness, as some mistaken people imagine. "Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (The Message)5
