    Gods Care for the Poor

    The Lord cares for the poor and the afflicted. He has identified Himself so closely with them that whosoever gives to the poor is considered as lending to the Lord. Jesus Christ was on this earth as a poor man, so that “he that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker.” 1Proverbs 14:31. “The Lord heareth the poor.” 2Psalm 69:33. “The needy shall not alway be forgotten; the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.” 4Psalm 140:12. “The Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.” “For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.” “Lord, who is like unto Thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?” 1Psalm 35:10. With the Almighty God so interested in their case, what a pity it is that the poor are so ill-advised as to seek to right their own wrongs. Sad to say, professed ministers of the Gospel of peace too often encourage them in this suicidal course.EVCO 169.2
