REMEMBER THE POOR
...For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always... John 12:8. Amazing words of Jesus Christ, that make us ashamed of our incapacity of eradicating poverty. But whoso hath this worldís good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 1 John 3:17.
According to FAO, UN department for agriculture and food in a report about poverty they announce that by 2015 millions will die of hunger. Today every 3,5 seconds a child dies of hunger in the world. May we pray to the Lord and work for those that suffer. If you have no needs near you, nor in your family, neighbours, friends, etc. search in your city or contact the NGOs. Remember the poor, Jesus reminded. ...Come you blessed of My Father, for I was hungry and you gave Me food... Matthew 25:35.

REMEMBER THE POOR
John 12:8 ÖFor the poor always ye have with you. Society is not able to eradicate poverty, however there are some organizations that have been trying for years, and for sure with a bit of effort from all sides it may be eliminated. There are several reasons why a person may be in poverty. Some times we think that by giving money the problem is solved. However, reaching poverty is a situation that makes a person value what he once had. Will help to seek God, because the rich rarely have any faith. But if a person under these circumstances tries hard, he will come out of it. If he receives Christ, itís guaranteed. There is another poverty, the spiritual one, this is more important than the material one, and only Jesus Christ can solve. So, ...feed the hungry and give drink to the thirsty. Give to him that asketh thee.
Some times we donít see the needs that we have around us. With the tenth of our incomes, we must also dedicate a part to the poor, because He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. Pray to the Lord for this and read it in Malachi 3:7 to 12. The storehouse is the store of the provision to feed the needs. Amen? The rest of your tenth you should dedicate to the needs of saints, to preaching the Gospel and to donate Bibles, etc.
Our Lord told us to separate the teithe of our incomes and that we dedicate it to Him, and to the ones in need, materially and spiritually. Read Malaqui 3:6 to 18 and 4. May the reader be aware of the blessings when dedicating this money to God, although we should not be looking for the reward , but the Lord is delighted in rewarding because He is just; and the more He provides us the more we will give. Or isnít He who enables us to have a job, our company to go well, for us to have health or any blessing? Therefore let us have the poor in our hearts, and letís also pray for them; for their souls.
Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. Palms 41:1
Only they would that we should remember the poor. Galatians 2:10
...he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever. 2™ Corinthians 9:9
He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse. Proverbs 28:27
He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. Proverbs 19:17
For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper. He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy. Psalms 72:12
For ye have the poor always with you; Mateo 26 :11
IT IS MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE POOR TO RECEIVE THE SALVATION OF GOD, THAN MATERIAL AID
... Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. Luke 6:20
... Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause. Exodus 23:3
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3
Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished. Ecclesiastes 4:13
What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Palms 34:12
Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: 9Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain. Proverbs 30:8 y 9
Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? James 2:5
BIBLE TEXT TO MEDITATE
Matthew 25:31 al 46.
31When the Son of man shall
come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon
the throne of his glory: 32And before him shall be
gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a
shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33And he shall set the sheep
on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34Then shall the King say
unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the
kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35For I was an hungred, and
ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and
ye took me in: 36Naked, and ye clothed me:
I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37Then shall the righteous
answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or
thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a
stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick,
or in prison, and came unto thee? 40And the King shall answer
and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto
one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41Then shall he say also
unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire,
prepared for the devil and his angels: 42For I was an hungred, and
ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43I was a stranger, and ye
took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye
visited me not. 44Then shall they also
answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a
stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45Then shall he answer them,
saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least
of these, ye did it not to me. 46And these shall go away
into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
