I love me some Proverbs 11:25:
The liberal soul shall be made “fat”. Get it? phat?
Check it out in the:
Jubilee Bible 2000
The soul who is a blessing unto others shall be made fat, and he that fills shall be filled also himself.
GOD’S WORD® Translation
A generous person will be made rich, and whoever satisfies others will himself be satisfied.
A generous person will be enriched, and the one who provides water for others will himself be satisfied.
So I had to check out the some definitions. To be Liberal is to be abundant, copious, ample, lavish. It also means to be open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values. We are that first, we are liberal (from the heart of Christ within us). Cause lets face it, me personally, I tend to be stingy and cheap, that is in my flesh.
THEN, we are made PHAT! Which is slang to be excellent, hot and sexy. Definition added for all us old fogeys out there. I have to admit I had to google what “phat” meant in slang. I am going to move the future tense used in the translations to present tense because we know that God is timeless and just cool like that and doesn’t make us wait for phatness for 20 years or until we die and go to heaven
