The Business of Help
Today's reading: Proverbs 21:13; Proverbs 28:27
"Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered" (Proverbs 21:13).
"Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse" (Proverbs 28:27).
All this week we've been looking at and considering verses in Proverbs about being generous and helping people around us who are in need. As we finish out this week, here are a couple more verses that powerfully deliver the message that God wants and expects us to be in the business of helping others.
In any given week, how much thought do you give to helping people in need in your community (church, school, neighborhood, family, homeless)? When is the last time you extended help to someone? Who have you noticed or who do you know that you could help this week? Will you embrace "the business of help" and step up and take action? Tami
