Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
I Timothy 6:18
God created you for a great purpose. He created you to be His ambassador of love! All around us are people in need. No one is immune from heartache, illness or crisis. But there is a group of people close to the heart of God that He keeps reminding us of. It is the poor. It is so easy to forget, yet He doesn’t forget. And if we are going to be His disciples and do His business, then we must take serious God’s cry for us to help the poor and needy. Paul tells Timothy to command those with the means to do good. He wants us to be “rich” in good deeds and to be generous. God has called His children to be kind and compassionate to those in need. When we are kind to the poor, David reminds us that there is great joy! And it is true, there is great joy. Today ask God to help you find ways to help those that are less fortunate.
Father, I confess I get so wrapped up in my own life that I haven’t taken the time to consider the poor and needy. I worry about my own needs and do not feel the compassion I should for those in need. Please forgive me. Help me today to find something I can do. Guide me to someone who I can help. I want to be generous and willing to share with others in the way You have been so generous and loving to me.
In Jesus’ name. AMEN
