Scripture for the day is Proverbs 19:17 and 2 Corinthians 8:9

Proverbs 19:17:

Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord,
    and will be repaid in full.

2 Corinthians 8:9:

For you know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I live in a society that loudly proclaims its concern for the poor and oppressed, but few of us become personally involved with their plight or give much more that a token of time and money. Give me the grace to be different, in light of your love for those who do not have the world’s goods. Amen.
