Wisdom from the Psalms 9/9

September 9

Psalms 112:5
A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

Pops always had people coming to him for help. Whenever there was a real need, you could count on Pops to be there, ready to pitch in. Pops had worked construction for about thirty years, and there were few fix-up type jobs that anyone could do better than he could. He loved to help people in need, and he loved to feel needed.

Our God is much the same way. He loves to assist us when we need help, and He loves to be needed. No one possesses more knowledge or experience than God does, so He is the perfect source to turn to when we need help. His willingness to give knows no bounds, so there is never a time when He will be unavailable. Turn to God in time of need. He will always help those who love Him.

Prayer: Let me follow the giving example of Christ. Make me ready to serve; sharing time, talents, and gifts wherever and whenever possible. Amen.
