Feed Their Souls

“For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have Me.” (Matthew 26:11)

Nothing has done more for the impoverished and disenfranchised than the religion of Jesus Christ.  Jesus put more emphasis upon helping the less fortunate, the downtrodden, and the voiceless than any other man who walked the earth before or since.  The record is clear – Jesus cared deeply for the poor.

So why say what He did about the poor always being with us? What it CANNOT mean is that He has no concern for the poor.  So it must mean that His presence and His mission to seek and save the lost is οf superior importance to caring for the poor.  If you remove a man’s poverty, you feed him for a season.  If you remove a man’s sin, you have redeemed him for eternity.

Keep your eyes on the prize.  Do good to all men, but don’t forget to tell them about Jesus.

Matthew 4:4 #Biblebites
