"Faye Daily Words Of Encouragement # 301 Today's Word Is : Borrow "

Definition of the word Borrow: Means to take something with agreement to return or repay in kind, or equivalent to, or adopt as an idea.

Deuteronomy chapter 15 - 6 : For the Lord thy God blesseth , as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend thou many nations, but thou shalt not borrow, and thou shall reign over thee.

Psalms chapter 37 - 21 : The wicked borroweth and payeth not again , but the righteous sheweth mercy and giveth.

Provers chapter 22 - 7 : The rich ruleth over the poor  and the borrower is servant to the lender.

Matthews chapter 5 - 42 : Give him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not him away.

Exodus chapter  3 - 22 : But every women shall borrow of her neighbor, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver and jewels of gold  and raiment : and ye shall put them up on your sons and upon your daughters; and shall spoil the Egyptians.

Today's words of encouragement word is Borrow: which means to take something with an agreement or intention to give it back or repay it in kind or equivalent to, or adopt as an idea. I believe the bible when it said the rich rulet over the poor and the borrower is servant to the lender, which means in today's world of finances, we are all servants to the lender because we don't have the cash to pay for the things we want in life.We all get loans for things we need or want in this life, that why we're all up to our eye balls in debt.

The bible also tells us to give to him that asketh thee and from him that would borrow of them turn him not away, which means if someone come to us and ask us for something , being cash or something else, we suppose to give to them; regardless of they want to do with it, and if someone want to borrow from us, the bible says to not turn them away. There are people today, that refuse to give anything to those that ask for a hand out, because they think they're being used for their goodness sake. The thing is, when ever you give, give it from your heart no matter what that person do with it. you will have done what God's word had asked of you.

      creativeone, to borrow, to tell you about my father, many would ask him for many things even money, as my father was a pastor he would loan out to those who asked, and he would say to them give back when you can, sorry to say not many ever did that, to borrow yes it is to give back.

      God gives to us many things, how many ever give back to Him.

      God loves you

      Creative,

      Great lesson, many people live above their means, but many are struggling to make ends meet. If we can lend a hand, we are fulfilling Christ,s teachings. Thank you.

      Love and Peace

      I see the dangers of borrowing beyond the ability to pay back almost everyday. So amny come with the dream of buying a home but can't because in the past they bit off more than they could chew or just flat out neglected their commitment to a creditor. Good word.

      Great hub and I learned an important lesson when it came to borrowing money from a particular lending institution. I paid a very high interest and if I was a day late they called everyday harassing me. I never used that company again.

      A WONDERFUL devotion and all so true.

      "The thing is, when ever you give, give it from your heart no matter what that person do with it. you will have done what God's word had asked of you." I AGREE!

      God is not judging us according to what others do with what we give them. He is taking note of our heart in the giving.

      Love and peace,

      Forever His,
