Be generous to the poor—you’ll never go hungry;
shut your eyes to their needs, and run a gauntlet of curses. Proverbs 28:27
Last Sunday I posted Answer the Cry of the Poor and shared about our church’s Compassion Day. It may seem redundant to reference a verse about helping the poor again but I love in these verses it says be generous.
We talked this week in our small group about the Good Samaritan and how he didn’t just throw an encouraging word or fistful of money, but went way beyond. He was generous with his time, money and efforts towards someone he not only wasn’t responsible for, but by cultural standards, should have hated.
I thought I’d also share the video we contributed to for the special. It is a rare occasion to get Scott Bennett on camera. Love his heart.
Challenge: If you didn’t take the challenge last week, go sponsor a child.
