With-Holding Good.


Do not withhold good from those who deserve it

        when it’s in your power to help them. 
If you can help your neighbor now, don’t say,
        “Come back tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.”

— Proverbs 3:27-28 NLT


When there is something you can do to help a brother or sister in need.  The Word of the Lord says; do it.  Stop with the excuses as to why you cannot give a piece of bread to those who sit over night hungry.  All because they refuse to find a job and keep it.  This is baring the infrimities of the weak that the Bible talls about.  Being stronger than a person does not give us the right to loothe them.  To hate what they ask for from us.  It is bullying in its greatest form.   To make some one beg because you can.  I remember hearing someone I was taught by saying that if people do not open their mouths and ask, then how wil anyone know they have a need? I ws shocked to hear that type of mindset coming from a purveyor of truth and teaching of the law and Word of God.  We who see a need and donot try and relieve it in some way.  Are worse then murderers and molesters.  We watch people squirm in the seats when we can help them by offering our services.  People will break their knecks to save a dear on the side of the road.  But, a homeless man sitting on corner asking for help. We question his motives. 

How dwells the love of God in us, when we shut our bowels of compassion.  That is actually considered constipated.  It eventually makes us sick wjen we cannot relieve our selves.   So does not opening our hands to help another, it eventually makes us sick in the soul.  Last part family.  Lets not use a person in need.  You know, when people habe something they can do for you before you do for them.  God never said for us to barter in our giving.  We do it because we are able, and because He has suplied what we store up in our cupboard.
