The one who gives to the poor will not lack, but whoever shuts his eyes to them will receive many curses.
Lord God, do not let our hearts become hardened to the injustice and desperation of those who are in great need! Let your Holy Spirit ignite in us love and generosity that springs forth like a river of living water! Your heart, Lord God, is for those in need. Help us to follow Your example. Isaiah 58:6-7 (NIV) says, “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?”
