Wisdom Matters (Day 26)


Apathy is not a part of God’s holy nature.

Listen to today’s Truth…

God is looking for us to partner with His heart.

Read the following Scripture…

Proverbs 17:5 says, “Whoever mocks the poor shows contempt for their Maker; whoever gloats over disaster will not go unpunished.”

Consider these thoughts…

Once, my husband was connecting with a missionary who shared stories upon stories about hardship and persecution. The fruit of this missionary spoke for itself, for he had brought thousands of people to Christ. After a few hours, my husband asked, “Sir, what motivates you to go through all this suffering to save souls you barely even know?”
It didn’t even take a second for this missionary to respond by saying, “Because I know it comforts God’s heart that I care about what He cares about.”
Neither my husband and I never took a moment to even consider how God must have felt about those thousands that could have been destined for hell. What a privilege it was to witness a man who lived to please the Father!

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

  • Ask the Lord what’s on His heart today.
  • What is something you see in your everyday life that you feel the Lord wants you to cultivate more empathy for?

Pray…

  • For a Christ-like heart.
  • For the vision and wisdom to serve those in pain.
