11.3.2010 Proverbs 3:27

Proverbs Post #12-

 Today I was reading in chapter 3, viagra sale and verse 27 spoke to me today.  It says:

3:27  Do not withhold good from those who need it, ampoule
when you have the ability to help.


This world is all about us, right?  Every penny we have is to provide us every comfort we desire!  Hopefully, that shocked you a bit.  Do you live your life that way?  I know everyone struggles with wants and desires because I struggle as well.  David Platt, author of Radical, writes this of his realization, “We were settling for a Christianity that revolves around catering to ourselves when the central message of Christianity is actually about abandoning ourselves.”

If we abandon ourselves then our focus is on God and others.  Verse 27 says we are to use the resources in our control to help others!  99.9% of everyone who reads this has the ability to help.   

Will you help those who need it?

I want to challenge you to take up reading the Proverb of the day and the entire chapter as well. 

Lord, please help each one of us to keep our focus on things above and not the things of this earth.  Amen.

I am using the Net Bible to quote from for these posts.
