Caring For The Poor

There is such a discrepancy between the poor and the wealthy in our world. Hundreds of millions of people have no access to clean water around the world. Hundreds of millions of people live on a mere pittance. We who live in America sit high on the hog and complain about so many things. We show very little concern for those who are poor among our own people let alone those around the world. Proverbs says:

The righteous care about justice for the poor,
    but the wicked have no such concern. – Proverbs 29:7 (NIV)

God cares about the poor and His people should be concerned for them as well. If we who have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ will not be concerned for the poor, then who will? We who should not be living for earthly wealth need to be more concerned for eternal matters rather than earthly possessions. We should set the standard for caring for the poor instead of squabbling over whose job it is. We have to do better if we want to be considered truly righteous.
