Have you ever lent someone money, knowing you weren’t going to get it back? I have! You gotta know when you let it go that you probably won’t ever see it again.
But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Luke 6:35
It’s one thing lending to your friends and family, but it’s a whole ‘nother thing lending to your enemies. At the very least you want to get it back, but we’re challenged to see it as a seed. The real reward is in the hands of our Rewarder, who will multiply the very thing we added to our enemy.
