“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the HOPE of the glory of God. (Romans 5:1-2)
I see millions in various news media in many countries suffering from starvation and homelessness including children. It breaks my heart even though the Lord said the poor will always be among us. (Mark 14:7). He also said in the same verse “And you can help them any time you want.”
It saddens me to know there are many rich among us who can help but turn their focus away from benevolence in times of crisis. Instead, focus on becoming the riches person in America, or in the world, so their photos can be published in magazines broadcasting their riches.
Luke 12:48 states “From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. The story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16:19-31 is a perfect example of how tables can easily turn when we do not help.
