Proverbs Chapter 14 verse 31.
He who oppresses the poor
shows contempt for their Maker
but whoever is kind to the needy
Who of us that belong to God would want to oppress the poor? However this does seem to happen sometimes without us even knowing until it is pointed out to us by God. The poor are not only those without financial or worldly goods but are those poor souls without Jesus. The kindest thing we can do is to tell them about Him as well as befriending them.
The above is taken from the book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
Let us see how nice it is to be kind to one another. Sometimes just a smile will do. Other times we may need to do a bit more to be kind to those we love. How often do we take our families for granted expecting them to do things for us and grumbling when they don’t. Well – maybe we should look at our own attitude remembering that we will honour God our Heavenly Father when we take time to appreciate those who are in our care.
It is good to let others know that we have Jesus in our lives and as Christians encourage others to want to know why.
God Bless you today if you are a Christian and also if you are not maybe you may decide to become one. It is very easy – just repent of your sins and ask Jesus to come into your life, how about that then?………..Well one day you may give it a go……..
To Repent means: that you do not want to do that bad thing again whatever it is or was.
Have lovely day today.
