Even if darkness overtakes them,
sunrise-brilliance will come bursting through
because they are gracious to others, so tender and true.
Life is good for the one who is generous and charitable,
conducting affairs with honesty and truth.
Their circumstances will never shake them
and others will never forget their example.
They will not live in fear or dread of what may come,
for their hearts are firm, ever secure in their faith.
Steady and strong, they will not be afraid,
but will calmly face their every foe
until they all go down in defeat.
Never stingy and always generous to those in need,
their lives of influence and honor will never be forgotten,
for they were full of good deeds.
– Psalms 112:4-9 TPT
