Defender of the Poor January 14
Food for Thought: II Cor. 8:9
God cares so much for the poor that He sent His Son to become poor in order that they could become rich. What an awesome price He paid to stamp out the curse of poverty!
When I look around this world, I see the multitudes that live in utter destitution and oppression. They haven’t gotten the Good News yet that Christ died for them to give them life in abundance and that He intends for them to ascend from “glory to glory” in every aspect of their lives.
That’s where we come in. We’ve been recruited by the Father to share the Gospel with those we encounter in need and to do our very best to alleviate the oppression in which they live until the Kingdom of God is manifested in their lives. Then they, in turn, can do the same for those they meet in the same condition as they were.
The beauty of His plan is that as we sow seed in their lives and improve their conditions, the Word promises to bring us true happiness, as well. It’s a very good investment!
