Message of the Day: The Character of a Good Man
Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice (NIV).
A good man promotes the welfare of other people, identifies himself with those who are in need by lending his money to be used temporarily and returned again. However, “A man who always ‘borrows’ is not a desirable neighbor; but a man who never lends – who is never willing to accommodate – is a neighbor that no one would wish to live near – crooked, perverse, bad man.” (Barnes)
A good man also knows how to manage his affairs prudently and wisely. Since he look for the welfare of others and runs his life justly, God looks after him as well- he will lead a life of “solid and lasting reputation” (MSG)
