A Syrian Refugee Jeweler’s Act Of Kindness

Was the woman surprised that the shop owner paid her and gave her back the ring?

  • Yes! That is not normal at all!
  • The shop owner is entitled to make a profit on the goods he sells. He instead gave her the money as a complete gift.

How was this interaction between the shop owner and the mom with bills and no money like Jesus and us?

  • Jesus pays for us when we are in spiritual debt.
  • Just like the shop owner invited the lady to come back, Jesus invites us to come back to him over and over to pay our spiritual debts.
  • We offer Jesus whatever good we can give Him, and He accepts that and gives us back far more than we ever expect.
