"He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and He will pay back what he has given." ~Proverbs 19:17
Who are we that we can 'lend' anything to God? This verse has always struck me as amazing. Its almost like if we have compassion for those less fortunate we are doing God a favour. But I think its more we are being used by God for this compassion & that God's way of thanking us is blessing us for showing compassion on those who need it.
I use the word compassion because I urge you to consider lending to the Lord and check out sites like Compassion Ministries at either www.compassion.com or www.compassion.ca This is the organization we sponsor our boy from Tanzania, Vicktor. How precious are the children who need our help.
I will be on a teeny bit of a blog hiatus for a couple days as I am going away with a friend for the long weekend here in Canada. I will catch up a couple days of Proverbs as soon as I can upon my return.
