A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.”
I believe many of us are concerned when we see a poor person with a sign “help me”.We immediately begin to think is he really in need or will he spend the money on booze or drugs.Reading the Psalms I read the above verse.God is pleased when someone helps a poor person out.When the giving person has a problem God is there to help him.Also God’s protecting hand is upon one that gives.When one that gives has poor health He is there to help. Our Lord taught the poor will always be with us (Matthew 26:11) This may help if you are concerned about helping someone out.Give the money in the name of the Lord and if they spend it wrong they will have to answer to the Lord.
Give thanks to the Lord that we have something to give
