Others Need Help Too

My grandmother, who taught elementary school in a poor community for over 40 years, was concerned about helping children who were in need. She once noticed that a young boy was desperately in need of a pair of shoes, so she bought him a pair. Then she became concerned that the boy’s parents might be offended at her unrequested act of kindness. Her fears were alleviated when the boy came to school the next day and told her, “My parents said to tell you that my brother needs a pair of shoes too!”

Jesus said that the poor would always be with us, and the implication is that we should be concerned about helping them. There are many opportunities to give to worthwhile Christian causes that give aid to the poor. Let’s see what we can do to help someone in need.

“He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward him for what he has done.”—Proverbs 19:17.
