Fasting From Negative Choices
Today’s Fast: Today We Are Fasting from the choice to… Be Stingy
Stinginess is the opposite of generosity. While a generous person gives freely- and finds joy in paying it forward, a stingy person withholds and like a parasite is more concerned with taking rather than giving reciprocally. Though stinginess is most commonly associated with money, a person may be stingy in other things like a person who always wants your emotional support but never supports you when you need support.
Stinginess is such an undesirable quality that this is what the Bible has to say about it……..
Proverbs 23: 6 – 8 warns us …”Do not eat the bread of a man who is stingy; do not desire his delicacies, for he is like one who is inwardly calculating. Eat and drink!” he says to you, but his heart is not with you. You will vomit up the morsels that you have eaten, and waste your pleasant words.”
Stingy people never give from their hearts. They always give begrudgingly or with an ulterior motive. This is why you have to be mindful about accepting things from stingy people. If you notice stinginess within yourself make the choice to change your heart and choose generosity over stinginess.
Today Is A New Day

And the risen version of you has the power and capacity to rise to the occasion and handle your business for today.
Remind Yourself: …“ Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you.” (Deuteronomy 16: 17)
