A Defaulted Loan
By: Rick Boxx

Philip had something Matt wanted: a relationship with a high profile account. Matt agreed that in return for an introduction with the owner, Matt would provide Philip with help for his struggling company.
Although Matt fulfilled his end of the agreement, Philip had a change of heart and never introduced Matt to his client. Matt felt betrayed.
Matt admits his willingness to help others is often based on what he can get in return. In Luke 6, Jesus taught, And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners expecting to be repaid in full.
Today, Matt looks for opportunities to help others, not for a return, but for a greater reward he can only receive through Christ!
