A LIFE INVESTMENT....(3)
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*A LIFE INVESTMENT......(3)*
Job 6:14 *To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Ecclesiastes 3:4 *a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.*
A timely help does save lives.
We must not wait until someone has passed away or has reached a point where nothing can no longer be done to salvage his situation.
From Job 6:15, Job was saying it is dutiful for a friend to show care to an afflicted soul.
This is God's word that finds foundation in Christ's teachings on the Mount and others in the bible.
Furthermore, from Job 14:1 *Man who is born of a woman Is of few days and full of trouble.*
This tells us none of us has reached a point where we are trouble-free.
Jesus says every day has its troubles, Matt 6:34.
Eccl 3:1 tells us there is time alloted to everything. Good times do not continue uninterrupted , so bad times do not continue uninterrupted.
Change comes to every situation, either good or bad.
It is God ordained that afflictions will come to the righteous, but God promises deliverance, Ps 34:19.
It is ordained by Him that *Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.*, 2 Tim 3:12.
So how do we escape this except that everyone should rise up to be his neighbors keeper because you do not know when your own trouble will come.
You will be investing in your own future when you help those you could help today.
Do you think you can go through life alone?
Remember Eccl 4:9 *Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.*
*Let brotherly love continue.*, Heb 13:1.
Every help you render today does not only have earthly rewards, but It also has eternal value
*Call to Word action.*
Matthew 25:35-37 *For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:*
*Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.*
*The Christian clarion call.*
Jesus remembers you care.
Lord, help me. Let me remember people in need, and please remember me, too, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
