Do You Consider the Poor?

  • 2012 7 Dec
Do You Consider the Poor?

It is relatively easy to bless God when all is going well.  A home, a car or two in the driveway, food on the table, good job outlook.  As you live in this blessedness, are you aware of others who are not so fortunate?

When you see disaster hit your brethren, are you wondering what they did to deserve this disaster?  Are you secretly feeling superior because you are not experiencing their adversity?  We are not to judge, we are to be used of God to help. Disaster can fall on any of us at any time.

(Psalms 41:1) "Blessed is he who considers the poor, the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble"
