Learning That The Best Time to Love, Is Now!
In review of Proverbs 3:27-28 it says, “Whenever you possibly can, do good to those who need it. Never tell your neighbor to wait until tomorrow if you can help them now.”
Never hesitate in doing good for anyone who needs it right now. Don't tell them to come back .
What this means to me:
I should not hesitate to do good for anyone who needs it right now. I should never tell them or think they should just come back later. The best time to love is right now, not tomorrow, not later, not someday, not one of these days, not when I get around to it, not soon, but Now! I have learned that God places these opportunities in our life for a purpose. And as such I am to never procrastinate or delay in responding or showing love. Often these come as one-time opportunities that may never come again. God often uses me, his follower to show his love. In this way, I can participate in what he is accomplishing here on earth. So this verse reminds me, “Whenever you possibly can, do good to those who need it. Never tell your neighbor to wait until tomorrow if you can help them now” Proverbs 3:27-28 (GN).Whatever I’m going to give of myself, I should give now! Right now this is especially important, as my schedule is packed with things/deadlines that need to be met. Opportunities to help will often occur when I’m really busy. I suspect that one of these opportunities will occur in the near future and God is preparing me now through this reminder. I need to make sure that I allow myself to be open and ready to serve always. I can do so knowing that God will provide the time and resources I need to accomplish my tasks and meet my deadlines.
