The only extra thing they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor—the very thing I was eager to do.
One Christian calling that we see clearly, undeniably throughout Scripture is that of helping the poor.
This is one of those aspects of our faith, like forgiveness, that is non-negotiable. It is a very part Christianity. Helping and being with the poor is inseparable from being a Christian.
It is easy to forget while going from thing to thing everyday, but we mustn’t forget about those who are poor, suffering, alone. The world elevates the opposite. Christ elevates…well, read the Beatitudes in Matthew 5.
Do you remember the poor?
Do you help the poor in some way?
Do you ever spend time with the poor?
This will help keep your perspective on life healthy.
