“For there will always be poor people in the land. That is why I am giving you this order, You must open your hand to your poor and needy brother in your land.”
Deuteronomy 15:11 CJB
We do have a lot of needy people and as the times around us get darker, there will be more! When we give freely to the poor, it always gives us opportunity to share the Good News of Salvation!
“When someone asked you for something, give it to him; when someone wants to borrow something from you, lend it to him.”
Matthew 5:42 CJB
As giving as we should be, remember God doesn’t want us to be foolish, but He also doesn’t want us to be stingy either! We must always be prayerful about giving, but we need to be giving!
“He who is kind to the poor is lending to Adonai; and He will repay him for his good deed.”
Proverbs 19:17 CJB
Today, we need to realize God gave us an abundance so we can be giving, not to see what we can get in return, but to be freed up from being selfish and stingy! Remember, we can never out give God, we just need to use what He has given us for His glory!
Have a blessed day in Him!
