God’s Wisdom In Caring For The Poor!

(7/28/13)

 

1.      What does God want us to do for the poor?

 

A.      God wants us to help meet their needs

“She opens her arms to the poor
    and extends her hands to the needy.

(Proverbs 31:20)

B.      God wants us to seek JUSTICE for the poor

“The righteous care about justice for the poor,
    but the wicked have no such concern.

 

(Proverbs 29:7)

“Speak up and judge fairly;
    defend the rights of the poor and needy.

(Proverbs 31:9).

 

II.      How does our response to the poor reflect our attitude toward GOD?

 

A.      Neglect of the poor reflects our CONTEMPT for God

“Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker

(Proverbs 14:31a).

B.      Kindness to the poor reflects our HONOR of God

“…but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.”

(Proverbs 14:31b).

 

III.      Practical issues in how we show kindness to the poor.

 

          A.     How can we be good stewards?

                        “Those who give to the poor will lack nothing,
                        but those who close their eyes to them receive many curses.

(Proverbs 28:27)

“I have received full payment and have more than enough. I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.  And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

(Philippians 4:18-19)

“Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.  Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.   In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

(I Timothy 6:17-19)

B.      Seek to address physical and spiritual needs.

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

 

 

(Matt. 5:16)

“Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else.

(II Corinthians 9:13)

“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?  Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food.  If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?  In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

(James 2:14-17)

C.      PARTNER with other Christians and ministries.

          “In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joybecause of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now” 

(Philippians 1:4-5)
