Pr. 19:17: “He who has pity on the poor lends to The Lord, and He will pay back what he has given.”
Notice He says we are “lending” to the Lord. We can never out give God! He will always pay us back. If we have true faith, we can determine in our minds that we will give, trusting that God has not lied and will truly supply our needs. (whether we are giving time, furniture, forgiveness, mercy, money, clothing, food…anything)
The Lord said if we seek first His kingdom our needs would be added to us. God has glorious riches. God is our Creator, our Sustainer, and our Provider. If we only ‘believe,’ as Jesus commanded in Mark 11:24, He will prove His word true and provide all we need and more. We can walk in our calling as children of God. We can believe our Father’s words are 100% true! We can never out give our God.
There is a world all around us that is hurting, searching, and in need of a God that will also meet their needs. We have to introduce them to Jesus! We can’t keep Him to ourselves. Test it out today. Have pity on someone and show them the love of Jesus through your gift. I can say with certainty that God will pay you back.
