Sunday, April 4: Whoever is kind to the poor

Read Proverbs 19:17


On Sundays we'll consider some of the short and wise sayings from the Old Testament book of Proverbs.

Read Proverbs 19:17

Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord,

and he will reward them for what they have done.



The message of this little proverb is echoed multiple times by Jesus, including in his parable about the sheep and the goats and in his saying about giving a cup of water in his name. Why do you think this idea is so important to Jesus?


Think of one way that you can show true kindness to the poor, and then ask God to help you make it happen this week.
