“He has distributed freely; he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever; his horn is exalted in honour” (Ps 112:9).
What do high generosity, lasting righteousness and honourable power have in common? Naturally, we tend to associate the wealthy with cutthroat ambition and heartlessness. We tend to view power with suspicion, in light of the numerous megalomaniacs around us. So to us, these three things only mix like oil and water! Apparently, according to God’s word, they are quite compatible. One way of viewing the connection is through the lens of God’s character. We know that God is powerful yet compassionate, wealthy yet generous and just yet merciful. As His offspring, we are partakers of that divine nature through the precious promises (1 Pet 1:4). May your life be a distribution centre of God’s blessings, a beacon of righteousness and a powerhouse of honour!
