However, the Scriptures are clear that we are not to send others away in their times of need and destitution. Yet, we feel as if we need to be celebrated when we do that which is required of us.
This morning I celebrate Billionaire tech investor Robert F. Smith — the founder and chief executive of Vista Equity Partners. Smith will pay off the student loans of the entire 2019 graduating class of Moorehouse students. He blessed these 400 students with a head start, only requesting that they do not forget this blessing and pay it forward.
As a believer in Christ and a preacher, I give glory and honor to God for men like this, I never heard of Robert F. Smith until yesterday, yet I’m grateful to be Introduced to him this way, he was willing to be an example of what it means to share with others. As the Scriptures have taught me that Christ gave us everything that we may inherit all things, yet many believers are so selfish and judgmental as it relates to others outside of our church members, families and friends.
HE DID THIS FOR STRANGERS...
We forget that we were Spiritually empty and bankrupt, yet God has allowed us to tap into His limitless account as joint heirs with Christ. Now we have access to God through prayer and the ability to think on a Spiritual level. I don’t know if Mr. Smith is a follower of Christ or not, however, I do know that these types of acts are not happening everyday on this level causing it reported and recognized as mainstream news.
I am excited by today! Excited for the 400 students, excited for the act of kindness & for my faith. Do you have a story to share? We are excited about love and kindness share something that you’ve done in the comment section. Also share this blog with someone that may need to know that faith and love is still yet alive.
