I’ve mentioned before that part of my daily reading schedule is the book of Proverbs. I read the chapter of Proverbs that corresponds with the date. For example, today is October 25th, so I read Proverbs chapter 25. That allows me to read through the book of Proverbs every month.
I found it interesting that over the past few days in my reading of Proverbs, there have been SO many verses on the poor and feeding the hungry. Like these…
- “He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done.” Proverbs 19:17
- “If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered.” Proverbs 21:13
- “A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.” Proverbs 22:9
Maybe it had to do with the fact that last Wednesday I was asked if I thought I could help raise $5000 to send beans to the poor of Honduras. I’m always honored to help with things like this. So last Thursday we all began to raise $5000 for beans to go to Honduras. So many of you helped by giving and by posting the information on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
This morning I’m happy to tell you that we raised our $5000 for feeding the poor in Honduras. Wooo Hooo! To me this was just another sign that God still wants hungry people fed.
Thanks for all your help. You guys are THE best.
