“However, there need be no poor people among you, for in the land the LORD your God is giving you to possess as your inheritance, he will richly bless you.” (Deuteronomy 15:4)

Hang on that can’t be right surely. If we have God’s blessing there will be no poverty. He will richly provide for all our needs and for those around us. It is God’s heart that there be no poverty. Let’s bear in mind the heart of God.

Here is an unpopular question for you; how much of what God has given us have we set aside to meet the needs of the poor. We are rich beyond all measure if we take a global view. Are we eating the bread He destined to provide for others?

Quick Prayer. “Help me to reach out in your way Lord.” Amen
