Jesus said, If you have money, do not lend it at interest, but give it to one from whom you will not get it back. (95)
This is certainly noble advice, but it is much more practical and advantageous than noble. If you have money and lend it at interest the interest received is the only karmic reaction or reward. But if you give money to someone who cannot pay it back you will create the positive karma of being helped without demand of repayment by others when your karma brings you into times of destitution. So you are investing in the future. This is a lesson few learn because they want to grasp what is right in front of them at the time without regard to future possibilities. As in the previous verse the tremendous power we wield through intelligent understanding and employment of the law of karma is being shown us.
