Lending to the Lord

Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done.” (Proverbs 19:17)

Have you ever wondered how you can possibly lend to the God who created and owns everything? How can you lend to the owner? That’s exactly what this verse says. It seems impossible, at least to me.

The point here is that the Lord considers caring for those in need so important that he will be personally indebted to those who do it. He will reward them.

The bible is filled with examples of how God loves the orphan, the helpless, the hopeless and the poor. It is the very heart of God.

We certainly can’t fix them all. We can’t even reach them all. But we can reach one or two or maybe 1000. Who knows what God can do if we make ourselves available to him.

Reach out today; not just with your feelings. Do something. Ask God to show you how you can impact a life. God only knows how many lives will be touched and what rewards will await you.
