The Sunday school answer to this question is pretty straightforward: Why do we help the poor? Because God calls us to. And the reason He asks us to help the poor seems straightforward as well: God loves them and wants to bless them. But God’s blessings are always multiplied. Something shifts in our hearts, too, when we give for His sake.
1. Beyond church giving, do you regularly give of time or money to help the poor?
2. Can you think of a time when you have given that yielded a specific blessing to you or changed your attitude for the better?
Challenge: Find a specific way to support the poor this week, whether big or small, beyond your normal level of giving.
