"When there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but the one who keeps the law, blessed is he!"  Proverbs 29:18

Another interpretation for this scripture is "Where there is no vision, the people perish."   

Think about this verse in the context of generosity. When you have no vision for how you will give...You won't. You will cast off restraint and go back to what's the most comfortable for you.  

But, when you have a plan, when you have vision, you will continue towards what you are hoping to accomplish. So, what is your vision for your generosity?  What do you hope to accomplish? 

And, notice what is the foundation of the vision. Not your feelings or emotions but rather, "the law."  God's Word is the foundation. What God says is what forms our vision. Why?  Because God's ways are best and God's ways work.  

Look to God for the generous vision He wants for your life. Apply his ways to your thinking. This is the best vision for your life.
