1085 Compassion for the Poor - Proverbs 21:13

• 4 min

The passage for today is Proverbs 21:13. It says, "He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor will also cry himself and not be answered." This verse warns us that if we are not compassionate to the poor, we will not be shown compassion ourselves. We need to have compassion for the people around us, especially those who are struggling financially or in other ways. As Christians, we are called to be compassionate and to help those in need. We should not ignore the poor or turn a blind eye to their suffering. Instead, we should reach out to them and offer them our help. There are many ways that we can help the poor. We can donate money to charities that support the poor, volunteer our time at soup kitchens or homeless shelters, or simply reach out to those in need in our own communities. No matter how we choose to help, the important thing is that we do something. We cannot afford to ignore the poor and needy. We must have compassion for them and show them the love of Christ. Let us all remember the words of Proverbs 21:13 and open our hearts to the cry of the poor. Let us be compassionate and generous, and let us help those in need.
