We are concerned with helping those who can in no way repay us.
This is the example of Jesus Christ – he gave freely, and asked us to give freely also. Proverbs 19:17 says those who give to the poor, lend to the Lord. When we give to those who cannot repay, the Lord himself brings the return. We are building treasure in another place – that is the law of God’s kingdom, to give freely to the most broken. After all, compared to God, we are all poor, broken, needy and destitute. Thank you Jesus for your mercy for us!
