Blessing others in spite of an economic downturn
What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you. So what Ruth did for Naomi after the death of her husband and her sons, God made sure that Boaz did for Ruth. Never forget that God not only wants to bless the one being helped, but also the one helping, whom God will bless with more than enough to provide for those He has chosen to `redeem'. Economics was never a valid reason for refusing to `redeem' another person, and it's still not a valid reason for any church to not help its community today. The decision to help the poor, the hurting and the broken is the best economic decision any church can ever make. Paul Scanlon- "Crossing Over"
