Be a Lender

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Proverbs 19:1-29

There are quite a number of verses that tell and show us that loving people and being generous with those in need should be our practice as a Christian. But these words from Proverbs 19:17 caught my attention and gave me a little something more to ponder. "Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord..."

What does Proverbs 19:17 reveal about God and what He values? Based on this verse would you describe yourself as a "lender" to the Lord? Tami

Well, even though I do give to the poor and support a few ministries that feed orphans, I actually don't "feel" like I'm lending to the Lord. However, I suppose I am, based on this verse.... which actually seems weird to me :)

I would say that my congregation and I certainly strive to be lenders to the Lord. The unfortunate reality in this society, though, is that we run into far more people who are only trying to take advantage of others than we do people in genuine need. But, when we do find them we do what we're able to help them.
