    John 3:3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

    The Care of the Poor

    The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing. – Ps 41:3

    Remember that this is a promise to the man who considers the poor. Are you one of these? Then take home the text.

    See how in the hour of sickness the God of the poor will bless the man who cares for the poor! The everlasting arms shall stay up his soul as friendly hands and downy pillows stay up the body of the sick. How tender and sympathizing is this image; how near it brings our God to our infirmities and sicknesses! Whoever heard this of the old heathen Jove, or of the gods of India or China! This is language peculiar to the God of Israel; He it is who deigns to become nurse and attendant upon good men. If He smites with one hand, He sustains with the other. Oh, it is blessed fainting when one falls upon the Lord’s own bosom and is born thereon’ Grace is the best of restoratives; divine love is the safest stimulant for the languishing patient; it makes the soul strong as a giant, even when the bones are breaking through the skin. No physician like the Lord, no tonic like His promise, no wine like His love.

    If the reader has failed in his duty to the poor, let him see what he is losing and at once become their friend and helper.

    Solomon had forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots. – 1 Kgs 4:26

    Solomon was very rich. Everything was on the most magnificent scale. This made his reign very splendid, but in this luxury lurked danger. It is sad when in a community there is business prosperity while character is deteriorating. A poet says:

    “Ill fares the land, to hastening ills a prey,
    Where wealth accumulates and men decay.”

    The luxury of Solomon’s court, with the vast outlay of money, necessarily incurred heavy taxation, which soon became burdensome, and led ultimately to serious disaffection. An old legend says that in the heart of the staff on which Solomon leaned there was a worm which secretly was eating away the strength of the staff.

    The legend has its meaning in the fact that in Solomon’s prosperity there lurked the insidious evil which, by and by, wrought ruin to the king’s own character and disruption to his kingdom.
    Give diligence to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth. – 2 Tim 2:15

    Every man takes care that his neighbor shall not cheat him, but a day comes when he begins to care that he do not cheat his neighbor. Then all goes well. He has changed his market-cart into a chariot of the sun.

    He that is unacquainted with the nature of the world must be at a loss to know where he is. And he that cannot tell the ends he was made for is ignorant both of himself and the world too.

    Prayer
    Almighty God, may I not only approve of justice and kindness, but practice it. Grant that I may be attentive to the call of work and steadfast in completing it. May I be sincere to those who are dear to me, and never falter in my support to those who are dependent upon me. Amen.
