Consider the poor

BethanySMC - Thursday, 24 May 2012 12:29

Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness. Ps 41:1-3

The poor ye have always with you – said Jesus. How do we consider the poor? How can we help them? It is one of the primary duties for a Christians and if done properly, brings along many blessings.

When you consider buying a house, you start looking for one and start saving cash to close the deal. Sometimes it takes months or even years of active searching until that which you have considered is accomplished. When you consider something, you simply set your mind or eye upon it and then you work your way through to make it a reality. In the same way, when you consider the poor, it is not merely just giving them something in hurry, instead it’s thinking about them, creating plans that will benefit them, looking into their case with care and compassion.

When we deal with the poor, our care, often times can be more beneficial to them than the cash that we give in hurry. Let us open our hearts to those who are in need today. Let us consider the ways, options and things we have that will bless the poor that are among us. Let us take the time to talk to them, to understand them and help them. God watches every step we make to help the poor and takes regard of it very personally. In Matt. 25:40  We read: And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Besides the reward in heaven, He will also deliver you in your time of trouble. He will preserve you and keep you alive in times you could have been dead. He will be by your side if you get sick and help you in your needs. If God has blessed you today and you have more than just the essentials for life – consider the poor! Make it a life habit to think of the ways that you can help those who are poor among us today!
