Proverbs 19: 17

I’m Miriam  Neff-with STARTING OVER FINANCIALLY,-and I’m Valerie Neff Hogan, and we’re here to talk about money


M  When you give, will it be repaid?  We want give and take in relationships.  But God has a radical idea.


V  Proverbs 19: 17  Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and will be repaid in full.  When we a re kind to the poor and vulnerable we share in his work.  God is the father and defender of the widow and orphan. They may never be able to reciprocate.  But being repaid is not to be our motivation.


M  Important point.  We don’t give expecting a return.  We give to honor God and share in his work and purposes.  He’ll repay in a way that He knows is best for us.
