WITHHOLD NOT GOOD FROM THEM to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it . Proverbs 3:27. Again, this is a short verse, with a lot of Power packed into it. I'll explain. Almost everyone wants to Be Blessed with stuff they don't necessarily REALLY need, like going to the Flea Market and coming  home with a really great bargain. Or wanting to win some big lottery with more money than you know what to do with. It's just human nature. But this verse turns the reality completely around to where YOU are the provider of Blessings, TO OTHERS. No, generally you'll not be asked to give your house away, or empty your retirement account and give it all away, but the Lord WILL test you where He Knows your heart's at so YOU can see, where your heart's REALLY at. I'll explain. You're at a restaurant and the Lord asks you to leave a really good tip for your waitress, is it easy to do? You're buying 2 of something, one for you and one to give to a friend. One item is slightly damaged, barely noticeable, which one do you give to your friend, the "good" one, or the damaged one, "it's free, he shouldn't complain"?! This all boils down to "Heart Attitude". And if you're not Sure of where your hearts attitude REALLY is, just ask the Lord to show you. He'll set up real opportunities for you to give, or do, the better to someone else and YOU keep the lessor for yourself. He'll hit you where your Heart is and it won't take long for you to see where you need some improvement. Now, here comes the GOoD news. The more you "give away" the better, and keep the lessor, THE EASIER IT GETS TO OBEY THE LORD, and the more Joy He gives you as you Learn and Grow in CHRISTLIKENESS. This is like asking the Lord for more Patience, almost no one wants to do it, but those who do Grow in Christ, AND ARE GLAD THEY DID. It's tough to go through, but with Great Joy, when you do. Share a smile,  leave a tip YOU'D like to receive, give someone the nicer of the two, and you WILL, Be Blessed.
