Doing Good Promptly
Luke 19:1-10
And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.…

Zaccheus saith not, "I have given," as an upbraider of God; or, "I will give," as a delayer that means to give away his goods after his death, when he can keep them no longer; but he saith, "I give," to signify that his will is his deed, and that he meaneth Dot to take any days of payment for the matter; for as before he ran apace to see Christ, and came down hastily to entertain Christ in his own person, so doth he here give quickly to relieve Christ in his needy members. This is Zaccheus's last will and testament that he maketh before his death, and seeth the same proved and performed before his eyes. If, therefore, we desire to do any good to any of our poor brethren, let us learn of Zaccheus to do it quickly while we are alive, for time will prevent us, and death will prevent us.

(H. Smith.)
