Ecclesiastes 11 The Message (MSG)
11 Be generous: Invest in acts of charity.
Charity yields high returns.
In my YouTube video 10 ways to become a Proverbs 31 woman.. I discussed many different ways to achieve this goal. One of my favorite ways to achieve this goal.. is by being kind to the poor. The Bible teaches us as believers that God watches how we treat poor people (Isaiah 1). The Bible says in Isaiah 1,
13-17 “Quit your worship charades.
I can’t stand your trivial religious games:
Monthly conferences, weekly Sabbaths, special meetings—
meetings, meetings, meetings—I can’t stand one more!
Meetings for this, meetings for that. I hate them!
You’ve worn me out!
I’m sick of your religion, religion, religion,
while you go right on sinning.
When you put on your next prayer-performance,
I’ll be looking the other way.
No matter how long or loud or often you pray,
I’ll not be listening.
And do you know why? Because you’ve been tearing
people to pieces, and your hands are bloody.
Go home and wash up.
Clean up your act.
Sweep your lives clean of your evildoings
so I don’t have to look at them any longer.
Say no to wrong.
Learn to do good.
Work for justice.
Help the down-and-out.
Stand up for the homeless.
Go to bat for the defenseless.
Let’s hone in on the homeless part…
God Sees Everything
Every rude or evil thing that you do will come back and boomerang back on your head. When you have a friend or loved one that is down and out…. DO NOT MISTREAT THEM ! You don’t want to mess with someone who God has in a pruning process. I believe that the time we are walking into, people will be forced to apologize for the evil that they have done to other believers…. AND YOU NEED TO!
If you are being cruel and mean, I charge you to repent and change your evil ways. Change your thinking , living, and beliefs to align to the Word of God. Your blessings are being hindered because of how you treat people.
Your prayers will come to pass when you learn the value of people. You need people. You need to treat people right. The Bible says to honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, and honor the king. Love Jesus and treat people the way that they should be treated.
