Good morning people of god 💜
yesterday as i was looking for a parking space at wal-mart, i noticed a young lady standing by the door with a sign that said " i need help." i immediately thought to give her $5. nothing much, but something. when i got out of my car & began walking to the door i noticed that she was dressed for the chilly weather, a purse drapped diagonally across her shoulders & she was very much pregnant. i made eye contact with her & kept going into the store. i thought to myself, "she doesn't look like she needs help for real." but i quickly brought myself in & i thought "who am i to determine if someone looks like they need help." if my #spirit
said $5 & then my mind contradicted it...who wins??....my spirit. (before i left my car i had taken the money out to give to her.)
i walked out of wal-mart and stopped to talk with her, money in my hand. we talked for a minute or two. i gave her the money & as i turned to leave i noticed a woman who looked at us as if to laugh at the picture of the two of us. i thought ," she might think that she is a scam. she might think that i have been fooled." i did not care either way. i know whose i am.
we are quick to send billionaires like #oprah, #ellen, famous #actors
free stuff. .....free stuff to billionaires!!! but then we will go down a whole checklist to determine if the #begger
on the street is worthy of a free dinner, a $5 bill. really??!!!! .
let's go bible this morning🙌
he who gives to the poor will not lack, but he who hides his eyes will have many curses. proverbs 28:27 nkjv
whoever shuts his ears to the cry of the poor will also cry himself and not be heard.
proverbs 21:13 nkjv
he who oppresses the poor to increase his riches, and he who gives to the rich, will surely come to poverty.
proverbs 22:16 nkjv
remember that our father is rich in houses & land.he owns the cattle on a thousand hills (material possessions) & god gave his son (his heart, his soul, a piece of himself) so that we might have life without sin & in abundance. .
when you give it's a #heart
