Those in need

The righteous know the rights of the poor. ~ Proverbs 29:7a (CEB)

God doesn’t miss anything. He knows perfectly well all the love you’ve shown him by helping needy Christians, and that you keep at it. ~ Hebrews 6:10 (MSG)

God expects us to act with empathy toward those in need.
Jesus, your commandment is to love God and my neighbor. Too often I'm stingy with my energy, my money, myself. Still you stay with me. You lead me to love -- to work for the good. Shine light on my neighbors, Lord, especially the poor. Help me see what's needed. Thank you for the privilege of serving your saints. Amen. (Daily Texts, Mount Carmel Ministries edition)
