May SOAP: God's heart for the poor and needy
1. SCRIPTURES: Proverbs 14:20-21, 31
- People are drawn to the rich but shunned the poor
- Even the closest people of the poor shun them
- God says, "Blessed are those who are kind to the needy"
- God is insulted when one oppresses the poor but He is honored when we are generous to them
- The poor and needy will always be around in society
- Will we do the counter-intuitive? To draw near to the poor, to be kind and generous to them?
- The blessings of the upright exalts a nation Pro 11:11. Blessing the poor exalts the nation
Lord, may every believer in Christ bless the poor and needy in extreme generous ways! Amen
