God Loves The Poor and Needy By Nathan Jukes

Do you ever see people who are homeless or in need? You need to do something, even if you give money to charities once a year. You are doing something worthwhile, I have given money to curity in the past. If you are poor and don’t have much money, you do not have to give money, but do not use this as an excuse, All that money that you're wasting could be going to house the homeless, the poor, and people that are starving. Use your money wisely because you might one day end up on the streets, starving if you don’t.

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20: 35 (ESV)

Paul is saying that we should remember the words of Jesus when he said. It is more blessed to give than receive. But what does this mean?

Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor. Proverbs 22:9 (ESV)

God will bless you for helping the poor, don’t do it because you just want to be bless do it because you want to be like Jesus who Loved the poor. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a real life homeless person, I don’t think there are any really close to me right now. Some of you might see qich a few homeless people. There are some people who think that all people on the streets will use all their money to buy beer and drugs. But this is not altogether true, some are there for other reasons. Some people think that homeless people are lazy. There maybe some who are lazy, but others try hard to find a job but just can’t seem to find one. When you see a homeless person begging for money don’t just walk by, do something. Jesus would never ever walk past a beggar person without helping. A small thing you could do is go up to them and ask if you can buy them something to eat. Don’t give them money unless you know that they won’t buy beer or drugs with it. After buying them something to eat try and find a shelter that will take them in. Instead of giving money to the homeless people give it to the shelter or the charities that will help the poor people. If you are the kind of person that likes nursing go and volunteer at your local  shelter. Whatever you do you are helping to help poor people. There are poor people all over the world we need to stop it. Thousands of people may die not knowing Jesus if we don’t make stand. God loves the poor and needy, Will you?
