God gives us a specific list of people who deserve special attention: orphans, widows and foreigners. In biblical times, those groups often had no way to earn enough for basic necessities. Today, there are fewer orphans and widows, but there are many who through no fault of their own are abandoned by parents or husbands.
1. Should we help those who are poor even when it might be partly or completely their own fault?
2. Do you interact with foreigners enough to learn whether they might need help?
Challenge: Examine your attitude about how and why people are in poverty and whether they “deserve” your help.
