There is a reason why there are way more poor people in the world than filthy rich. There is a reason as to why you don’t see a Bentley in every garage. This reason is found inside of everyone. The reason is the MINDSET!
Jesus said the poor you will always have with you. So tell me what sense would it make to even try to rid the earth of the poor! Our mission as ministers of the Gospel (that’s every one that is a Christian) is to preach to the poor the riches of the Grace of God!! I realize we are to go to all creatures but for the sake of this subject I say be like Jesus and preach the Gospel to the poor! That is what the poor need not another social program that they can complain about. But they need Jesus.
Now don’t think that I am against the poor. I just gave a man 100 dollars to help his family out. His family is in dire need of funds. So I hooked him up with a little something. What this man really needs to do though is surrender his heart to Jesus and everything would work together for his good. Everything that he would go through would work for his benefit and not for his destruction. If this same man would pay his tithes faithfully attend the church God would like for Him to go to and teach his kids the right ways of the Lord, this man would be out of the filthy trailer community, He’d have a nice vehicle, he would have a healthy wife and God would rain down blessings around his ears so much so he wouldn’t be able to hold them all. Everyday he walk into a flood of blessings instead of curses, riches instead of rags, a quiet home instead of riotous. Everlasting life can be his and it is as simple as Him confessing with His mouth the Lordship of Jesus Christ over his life.
However……the choice is his.
We are the sum total of every one of our decisions whether good or bad. We have to live with them every day. God gave us His word so that we may know which way we are to go.
AND THIS IS THE VICTORY THAT OVERCOMES THE WORLD…….OUR FAITH!!!
