Those who shut their ears to the cries of the poor will be ignored in their own time of need.
Do you have food to eat, clothes to wear, and a place to live? Some people don't have these basic things and they need people to help them out.
The next time you hear of people who are hungry or hurting, see if there is a way you can help. Maybe you can give some of your allowance to help them, or you can help serve them in some other way.
Right now, you may have plenty to eat and wear, and a warm place to live. But, things may not always be this way. This verse encourages you to help others so that if you have a need later on, people will help you, too.
Dear Lord, Please help me to listen and help with poor people cry out. Please help me not just to focus on what I want, but to see ways to help others, too. In Jesus' name, Amen.
