This verse really made me think. The more time I spent thinking, the more I wondered how and why we treat people the way we do. Have you ever wondered what causes you to compliment others or give generously?
I don’t think we purposely try to be unkind to others. But it never hurts to examine how you treat those you encounter. Have you ever wondered what triggers you to be kind?
It is a warm smile, warm greeting, or maybe a familiar face. Do you treat others well when you’ve heard good news. Or do you simply try to be good to others in everything you do.
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it. Proverbs 3:27 ESV
Why we withhold good?
- We tend to have attitudes that people around us must do something to earn goodness.
- Why should others earn our goodness? When we did nothing to deserve God’s goodness.
- Being good is not only about giving money.
- Just think who does it hurt for you to be good to others.
