Pr 3:27 ¶ Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do [it].
All who need our help have a claim upon us from God for it. We should give it promptly and cheerfully, and thank
him for the opportunity.
We are to observe the precepts of Christ and copy his example: to do justice, love mercy and beware of
covetousness; to be ready for every good work, avoiding needless strife, and bearing evils, if possible, rather than seeking redress by law. It will be found there is little got by striving.
Let us not envy prosperous oppressors; far be it from the disciples of Christ to choose any of their ways. These
truths may be despised by the covetous and rich, but everlasting contempt will be the portion of such scorners, while Divine favour is shown to the humble believer.
