Proverbs 19:17New Living Translation (NLT)
17 If you help the poor, you are lending to the Lord—
and he will repay you!
A paycheck from God! My goodness, I want one of those.
All we have to do is be a giver.
What have we done to help someone?
Have we passed by the guy with the sign because we have determined it was just a scam?
Have we ignored the red bucket and the ringing of the bell because we have to buy our own ungrateful kids Christmas gifts that they neither want or asked for?
Have we only put in $20.00 into the offering plate when our tithe is $200.00 because we have bills to pay?
Have we sneered at the mom with uncontrolled kids in the local Wal-Mart without offering to hold the baby while she settles the older ones?
When asked by the cashier “would you like to make a donation” you answer “NO!” before finding out the details?
Have you hit IGNORE on your phone when you see the number of the person who only calls when their light bill is due?
Anytime, not sometimes, not often time, but ANYTIME you help someone God is preparing you a check.
This check can come in various ways…
an answered prayer, healing, money, favor, restoration, deliverance, employement; the list goes on.
A check signed by God will never expire, or bounce.
It is always GOOD.
It is always MORE than expected
It comes with a bonus.
Don’t look for man to repay your good deeds; they don’t have enough resources.
Look for God to repay you.
His checks are Right On Time!
I want one of those checks signed by God; don’t you?
