Proverbs 19:17 -- On Investing in God

"He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again."
Proverbs 19:17

This is similar to other scriptures that indicate that the way we treat others is symbolically the way that we treat God (Matthew 25:40, 45).  The idea of lending to the Lord is an interesting one, and I like the idea here that God will restore to us whatever we give.  Not that that should be our only motivation of course; learning to love is an important lesson.

Today, let's help the poor and remember that it is an investment in the Lord... no chance of that turning out to be a bad investment. :)
