I believe God calls all Christians to show compassion to people in need.
Psalm 82:3-4 (NIV)
Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
Dear Warrior Poet,
Our role in defending and rescuing those who are weak, needy, poor and oppressed flows straight from the heart of God. We are never more Christ-like than when we are feeding, clothing, quenching thirst, and meeting the needs of those on the margins. Too often our goal is to get away from “those” people, and yet God’s heart reminds us that we were one of “those” people and that He rescued us. He has called us to “go and do likewise.”
Who in your life has a need you can meet? Where can you find one?
