“One who is gracious to a poor man lends to the Lord; and He will repay him for his good deed. (Proverbs 19:17, NASB)
We would never think it necessary to lend money to Warren Buffet or to Bill Gates. Each is worth billions of dollars and, I presume, have few (if any) creditors.
God has more than Gates and Buffet — combined! The scripture tells us that when we are gracious to the pauper, we are lending to God — and God will repay us — one and all — for our good deed.
Imagine what it must feel like to be a creditor of the Almighty. Imagine what it must feel like to receive His re-payment. We can experience both every time we are gracious to the lost, the last, and the least among us. – Luther
