Daily Devotional for March 17
"Remember the poor." Bible Study Reference: Galatians 2:10
Why does God allow so many of His children to be poor? He could make them
all rich if He pleased; He could lay bags of gold at their doors; He could
send them a large annual income; or He could scatter round their houses
abundance of provisions, as once he made the quails lie in heaps round the
camp of Israel, and rained bread out of heaven to feed them. There is no
necessity that they should be poor, except that He sees it to be best. "The
cattle upon a thousand hills are His"--He could supply them; He could make
the richest, the greatest, and the mightiest bring all their power and
riches to the feet of His children, for the hearts of all men are in His
control. But He does not choose to do so; He allows them to suffer want, He
allows them to pine in penury and obscurity. Why is this? There are many
reasons: one is, to give us, who are favoured with enough, an opportunity of
showing our love to Jesus. We show our love to Christ when we sing of Him
and when we pray to Him; but if there were no sons of need in the world we
should lose the sweet privilege of evidencing our love, by ministering in
alms-giving to His poorer brethren; He has ordained that thus we should
prove that our love standeth not in word only, but in deed and in truth. If
we truly love Christ, we shall care for those who are loved by Him. Those
who are dear to Him will be dear to us. Let us then look upon it not as a
duty but as a privilege to relieve the poor of the Lord's flock--remembering
the words of the Lord Jesus, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the
least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." Surely this assurance
is sweet enough, and this motive strong enough to lead us to help others
with a willing hand and a loving heart--recollecting that all we do for His
people is graciously accepted by Christ as done to Himself.
