Be Unburdened

Proverbs 3:28 (VOICE) Do not send your neighbor away, saying, “Get back with me tomorrow. I can give it to you then,” when what he needs is already in your hand.

Beloved, resist the urge to withhold what is owed simply because you “can.” If it is within your power to do so, be unburdened by obligation that you might owe no man, but simply be a vessel of love.

For owing – even when you have the means to repay, leaves your focus divided. So instead, close the door by completing the transaction and moving wisely on. In doing so, you make room for your undivided attention to be on Me, which is the wisest choice.

Proverbs 3:27-35 (VOICE) Do not withhold what is good from those who deserve it; if it is within your power to give it, do it. Do not send your neighbor away, saying, “Get back with me tomorrow. I can give it to you then,” when what he needs is already in your hand. Make no plans that could result in injury to your neighbor; after all, he should be more secure because he lives near you. Avoid fighting with anyone without good reason, especially when no one has hurt you; you have nothing to fight about. Do not envy someone who profits at the expense of others or copy any of his tyrannical ways, For crooked people are detestable to the Eternal, but those with integrity receive His counsel. His curse lingers over the wicked and their families, but He forever favors residence of those who do what is right. God treats the arrogant as they treat others, mocking the mockers, scorning the scornful, but He pours out His grace on the humble. In the end, the wise will receive honor, but fools will face humiliation.
