Who are the ones in need today that God is calling each of us to help?
(Listen to my song “Make Me a Channel” by clicking HERE)
He humbles those in high places, and the lofty city he brings down; He tumbles it to the ground, levels it with the dust. It is trampled underfoot by the needy, by the footsteps of the poor.
Scripture is filled with examples of God’s love and care of the poor.
The Prophet Isaiah wrote that those who build lofty kingdoms for themselves would see them reduced to dust.
All material wealth will one day disappear.
The more you have…the more you are called to share with those in need.
Jesus said, “Much will be required of the person entrusted with much.” (Luke 12:48)
All Christians are called to take the option of the poor.
In the words of Jesus, “Whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40)
As we prepare for Christmas and the coming of Christ in a new way in our lives…let us remind ourselves that Christ came to us (God made flesh) as a poor, defenseless baby whose parents were refugees without a home.
May we see Christ in all those in need…and respond!
