Wisdom Matters (Day 22)

Have you ever wondered about what God cares about?

Listen to today’s Truth…

Those who love the Lord would also love the poor and oppressed.

Read the following Scripture…

Proverbs 14:31 says, “Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.”

Consider these thoughts…

So much of the Christian concern can be so consumed with one’s self.
Does God care about my career? Does God care about my financial issues? Does God care about the details in my life that I care about?
The basic answer to this is yes. But, with that being said, the more pressing question is this: are we, as recipients of His grace and love, concerned about the things that move His heart?
God cares about the poor, the needy, the weak, and the defenseless.  Wisdom calls us to show empathy and compassion to such as these.

Apply the truth! The following are optional things to do…

  • How much of your life is dedicated to serving those that are in need? Find one thing that you can do today to meet someone’s needs today.
  • How can you be kind to the needy today?

Pray…

  • For the poor, especially the poor around your region.
  • For guidance on how to serve the poor and weak in your region.
