Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. Proverbs 21:13
Theres alot of people in need in this world, many people living in poverty, many people starving on a daily basis, many people living in broken homes. How do we respond to these issues? The Bible says “Whoever ignores the cry of the poor , their cry wont be heard either” As Jesus said “Do unto others as you would want done to yourself” (Matthew 7:12)
We cant expect God to “bail us out” if we are not willing to bail anyone else out. Basically the same principle “Those who forgive will be forgiven” (Matthew 6:14) When your a selfish person and dont help others, why would you expect people to help in a time of need? And we all know eventually all of us have that time when we need help!
So what is the mentality of the world? Take care of number One! Dog eat Dog! This is not the way Christ has taught us. Jesus said “Its better to give than to receive” ( Acts 20:35) Think about that! As modern Christianity teaches us to cry to God for prosperity , Jesus taught to take care of others instead of thinking of ourselves.
Now I know we cant individually save the world, however if each one of us just takes care of somebody, imagine the difference in the world. Theres supposed to be billions of Christians in the world, if each Christian took care of somebody, the world should be a much better place.
You dont have to save the world, Jesus Christ has already done that. But be his Hands and Feet, take care of others and preach the gospel of Christ , Amen!
