Proverbs 21:13 says, “He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor Will also cry himself and not be answered.’ What this implies is, God deals with us according the measure of compassion and love we show to the needy and poor He has place around us. Are we sensitive to the need of our maids, the gardeners who work for us, the widow struggling to make ends meet?
Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and He will reward them for what they have done. Proverbs 19:17
It takes a heart of compassion to show kindness to the poor and needy. If you are struggling in this area ask the Lord to help you.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, give me a heart of compassion to reach out and help those in need. Amen
