Mathew 26:11 ‘The poor you will always have with you…’
What an amazing statement by Jesus; what is God’s purpose for allowing there to be the poor and needy? Is it because they were created to suffer? Or is the real purpose thrown open to those who have been gifted by God and who have possessions to give? One may try and explain away the difficulties of the poor, “But they need to help themselves…they are the product of their own choices…it’s cultural…surely it is not my problem…other.” What was Jesus approach to the poor? Judgmental, labeling or compassionate and merciful? Mathew 25:40 ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ You can be a wonderful vessel for God, it is time to reach out more than ever. The poor and needy are there for you to do God’s work. Undiscovered blessings await you as you embrace compassion and mercy. Bless you.
