"She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy." Proverbs 31:20
Another repost from 2010...
So what does this mean for us as Christians? It means that we should love our fellow man and our hearts desire should be to help others in their times of need. Take the people of Haiti for example. When the massive earthquake and destruction hit there were people coming out of nowhere to help with money, time, and resources. Most of them were not Christians. But what about those that were? The Christians were able to donate the same thing the non-believers were, but they were able to give something even better--the message of Hope! The gospel...Jesus!
You don't have to go far away to make a difference in someone else's life. There are plenty of people in our own towns that need help. There are soup kitchens, homeless shelters, food pantry's, children's homes, drug rehab centers, and I could go on.
