Investment and Withdrawal

Psalm 41:1  Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. 2  The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. 3  The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.

The Bible is replete with reminders of sowing and reaping. Here is a good one. Be sensitive to and take care of the truly needy and God will ensure that you are ministered to in your time of need.

An old song says, "it's a gimmie, gimmie, take, take, gimmie, gimmie, take, take world." Unfortunately, this is how most people operate.

There are givers and there are takers. Taker's needs are never satisfied and the giver's satisfaction is in meeting needs.

Jesus said, it is more blessed to give than to receive.
One of the great blessings of giving is that God sees to it that the benefactor is replenished so that they are able to continue being a conduit.

Friend, invest in the needs of others and God will allow you to make withdrawals in your time of need
