Proverbs chapter 14 verse 31

Dave Humphrey, Pastor

I came across a great verse in Proverbs this morning.  It is chapter 14 verse 31.

The one who oppresses the poor

reproaches his Maker,

But the one who is gracious

to the needy honors Him.

Sure seems like Jesus expanded on this big time in Matthew 25.  Two images that I hope capture my attention every day from now to eternity:

an empty cross, an empty grave

sacrificial love, resurrection power

But where is Jesus?  Somebody once said something about the distressing disguise of the poor.  I just think he wants to do his thing in us and through us for others.

Blessings always,
