Proverbs is a book full of wisdom, instruction, and counsel for life. Proverbs 3:27, in particular, gives us the instruction: "Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act." The writer of Proverbs recognizes a very human flaw: We often fail to do good for others, even though we have the ability to do it.
We frequently hear about issues like hunger and poverty around the world. However, we don’t always respond as we should. We forget or ignore the fact that we not only can do good, but that we must. Proverbs 3:27 is an important reminder in a society where it is sometimes too easy to remain passive. The verse reminds us that we have both the power and the responsibility to do our part.
