Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it's in your power to help them. If you can help your neighbor now, don't say, “Come back tomorrow, and then I'll help you.”
Have you ever owed someone some money, but you're just don't want to pay them back--yet? Or, maybe you made a card or cookies for someone, but now you'd rather just watch TV than go and deliver it to them.
These verses say it's better to do good to people when you have the opportunity to than to wait. Help when you can. Be good and kind when you can.
Are there any things you are waiting to do that really you could be doing or helping right now? Then, don't just sit there!! DO something!
Lord, please help me to do good to those around me and to be kind. Please show me ways to help others. In Jesus' name, Amen.
