“His Children Become a Blessing”
“I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread. He is ever lending generously, and his children become a blessing” Psalm 37:25-26. In a radio commercial I once heard, a man wanting to become a Christian is asked by God to give Him his house, car, wallet, kids, and wife. Then, God tells him that He has this house, car, wallet, kids, and wife to put under the man’s care and lends them to him. What a great picture of understanding what David said while collecting items for Solomon to build the temple, “But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able thus to offer willingly? For all things come from you, and of your own we have given you” 1 Chronicles 29:14. As it all belongs to a loving God, we trust Him to take care of us, or as Jesus says in Matthew 7:11, “how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!” Never are the righteous forsaken or gone hungry. And because God gives to us, we can give to others. We can be generous, and our example of living out this trust in God’s providence allows our children to be a blessing to others. Do you give as He does?
