The Poor Are Blessed

Open your hearts and understand that the poor are the blessed ones. And whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered (Proverbs 21:13). Let God’s poor be glad for He thinks highly of them (James 1:9).

One day the poor will be raised from the dust and the needy will be lifted from the ash heap; And God will seat them with princes and He will have them inherit a throne of honor. “For the foundations of the earth are the Lord’s; on them he has set the world (1 Samuel 2:8). He is God alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; He has made heaven and earth. God rules over all the kingdoms of-the nations. In His hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand Him the poor have hope, and injustice will shut its mouth (Job 5:16).

God has written that believers are to observe the days as days of feasting and joy and giving presents of food to one another and gifts to the poor (Exodus 9:22). Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen (Isaiah 32:3). For Jesus said as He lifted His eyes on his disciples, and said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom” ( Luke 6:20).
