An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Fair Expectations

(Pro 11:26 KJV) He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.

We need to understand that the concept of a fair profit for your work is well grounded in scripture.  There are some people who think they should get without paying.  There are others who think you should give without thought of reimbursement.  There are times when that would be the case but those are the exception not the rule.  

The important idea is “fair” profit.  If you look back over the verses before this it explains that the righteous person operates a certain way and is rewarded for it.  We can’t demand the reward but we are responsible for our motives and priorities.  

So?  Share when it is appropriate but always be willing to give a fair deal.  That includes expecting others to pay for what they get.
