WHOEVER NOT WHATEVER

5 daily devotional friday

“Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you” (Matthew 5:42).

It’s important to note in this passage the emphasis is upon who, not what; whomever and not whatever. That is, due diligence and circumspection must still be exercised. I’m not going to give a murderer a gun, or a loan to a conniving scoundrel or a reckless spendthrift. We cannot be so naive in the understanding of scripture. Otherwise, the uninformed will find themselves bullied and guilted by those who would abuse scripture for their own selfish gain.
