Verse of the Day: Give to the Poor

June 2, 2007


27 Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to poverty will be cursed.

Proverbs 28:27 (NLT)

From the Life Application Bible:

God wants us to identify with the needy, not ignore them. The second part of this proverb could be restated positively: “Those who open their eyes to poor people will be blessed.” If we help others when they are in trouble, they will do whatever they can to return the favor (see 11:24, 25). Paul promises that God will supply all our needs (Philippians 4:19); he usually does this through other people. What can you do today to help God supply someone’s need?
