Welcome to another opportunity to hear from God’s word and respond to it throughout our lives.
In Proverbs 14:31 we read,
Whoever oppresses the poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honours him.
I know this is just one verse, however if you dig deeper and deeper into God’s word you will find many more like it.
Imagine if all who called Jesus ‘Lord’ made the call to never oppress the poor man (how would that look?) and then allowed the rest of our lives to flow in generosity out into our community. Would that make a difference? Would we as followers of Jesus be seen differently? Would the Church become an incredible force in and through our western culture?
I pray today that we would not just be hearers of God’s word but doers.
God bless you in all you do,
