Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to poverty will be cursed. – Proverbs 28:27 (NLT)
It’s easy to begin to overlook the people around you that need help. Maybe you’re so used to seeing the guy asking for money at the busy intersection of the shopping center, that you don’t even see him any more.
It’s easy to become so used to the needs and hurts of those around us every day that we forget that Jesus has called us to be light in the world and to help others.
So today, take some time and ask God how you can help. Find out if you can take some cookies to the older neighbor who is struggling to make ends meet. See if you could do something to help that guy asking for money at your shopping center.
Today’s Challenge: Don’t overlook the needs around you.
There are needs all around you. You’ve got to just begin to see them. Ask God for help and see if you can help give to those around you.
You’ll be amazed at the difference some simple generosity can make in your life and the lives of those around you.
