Joy, protection and prosperity in serving the poor

December 30th, 2013

The Bible says “Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor! The Lord rescues them when they are in trouble. The Lord protects them and keeps them alive. He gives them prosperity in the land and rescues them from their enemies.” (Psalms 41:1, 2 NLT)

I love the promises in these verses as we are kind to the poor amongst us.

1. The Lord rescues us in troubled times.

2. He protects us and keeps us alive.

3. He gives us prosperity in our land

4. He rescues us from our enemies.

The Bible often speaks of God’s care for the weak, poor, and needy, and of his blessing those who share this concern. This can give us confidence and we go about our work in serving the poor.

God Bless,
