If you help the poor, you are lending to the Lord — and he will repay you!
People are PrioritiesStandard
If in this country entertainers, athletes, businessmen and the like can get paid millions of dollars certainly we can house, feed and clothe the poor. When sports teams get new stadiums every 20 years or so it seems maybe we can build permanent shelter for the extreme poor in this country. I think our national and sometimes personal priorities are out of wack. The suffering of people should be more important than what happens on a TV show next. Yes I get wrapped up in fiction but the reality of our world is that there are many in all parts of the world going without the basics of life. Sorry but not sorry to be on a soap box today.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
A righteous man knows the rights of the poor; a wicked man does not understand such knowledge.
