Jesus told His disciples that there will always be poor people…
Matthew 26:11(NKJV)
11 For you have the poor with you always, butMe you do not have always.

How many times have you made eye contact with a poor person, a beggar, a homeless person, and you quickly looked away because you didn’t want to be bothered? You had enough money to help one of their immediate needs. Of course you couldn’t ‘save them’, but you could give them one meal…a pair of shoes…a room for one night.

Often we don’t help because we say they’re scam artists, or reason that they brought their situation on themselves and, yes we must use wisdom and discernment in how we give.

But, I do want to remind you though that God has given us the responsibility to showing kindness to those who are in need.

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
