proverbs_14_31

“Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.” (Proverbs 14: 31, New International Version)

Oppression comes in many forms. Poverty, as well, includes more than someone having less money to sustain their existence.

If we are to honor our Maker, God, divine Love itself, being unkind to or shaming or even being blind to one who appears to have less than us, is unacceptable. Behavior that diminishes another or judges him, shows contempt for our Creator, the One Who saw fit to create each one of us and to make us in His own image and likeness—worthy, lovable, good. We can see that any time we sneer at, denigrate, or even poke fun at one who seems in need, we are scorning God, divine Love, our very own Maker and Father-Mother.

Kindness is power and it is substance. When we show kindness toward one in need— whether it be a need for material provision or a need for enlightenment, renewal, joy, understanding—we are honoring God by utilizing His divine Love in ways that humanity can feel and know. This kindness and compassion blesses with God’s own qualities that one who seems in need, and the one expressing that loving care is blessed as well.

We all have times in our lives where we feel a lack. In Truth, our needs are always and already met by God. We are always worthy of knowing and feeling this Truth. The kindness of others and our mercy towards ourselves, begins to fill that need with the one most powerful and necessary thing—Love.

    thank-you Laura-in praying through many forms of ‘poverty-thinking’, I also see the greatest need is to express Divine Love ! (I work in a Metro-RR in a Downtown City and there are quite a few homeless people that “use” our RR.)
    It is also a distraction that as the many others around this little”oasis” have seemingly a lot of “material entrapments” and I’m sure they wonder a lot whats going on in that RR!!! –but as you stated its a joy to hold onto The TRUTH. No matter that some days I too fall short of this goal -each day there’s a new day to try again to erase “homelessness: and the pre-judging going on. And eradicate error from my thinking ~~ I honestly don’t know whats harder to heal -the poverty-thought-or the material entrapments-thought. Both seem insurmountable some days more than others —and by ‘heal’ its a reference to overcoming a resistance to God so that we can all dwell together in peace and harmony and to just be our perfect selves! (as God sees us all- this I’m sure of)

    Thank you for being there,
    Warmly
    XXXOOO
