Nobody owes you anything! You may very well be a good person who is always showing love to everybody, maybe even giving your very last to those in need. But still, nobody owes you anything! Let me remind you that God has already commanded us to LOVE others. Whether they love us back or give us what we THINK we deserve in return or not; we are commanded by God to LOVE… Point blank period! Now consider this, PEOPLE are mere flesh and blood; and flesh amounts to nothing but SIN. So how can we seriously expect SIN (a mere person) to be fair with us and give us anything we feel we deserve? That’s like expecting the devil to nicely or willingly hand us back what he may have stolen from us. It’s just not going to happen!
So now the question becomes: Does God owe us anything? To this I say: Of course not, God has already given us so much. He gave His only begotten Son for us; and then He continues to give us chance after chance to get it right. Yet and still we don’t serve or love Him right; but we have the NERVE to get mad at mere flesh and blood when people don’t do us right! Now I know it hurts when you feel as if people are always giving you the “short end of the stick” but we do this to God all the time and think nothing of it! Listen, keep LOVING and doing what’s RIGHT. And rest assured that God, even though He owes you nothing, will be the one to repay you! Nobody owes us anything; yet God is the only one with enough grace and mercy to pay us back a reward that we really don’t even deserve!
John 13:34-35 (New King James Version)
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
-To God be the Glory
