Proverbs 22:16 gives us a strong admonition about how we are to treat the poor: “Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth, or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.” – The Holy Bible : English standard version. 2001 (Pr 22:16). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.
A simple application from this is that I love to provide biblical counseling for FREE and I love meeting with people who live in Woodlawn and other impoverished areas at Christ Health Center.
What a blessing for TIL to serve the Lord in Woodlawn and to fulfill this proverb!
-Mark (looking for more opportunities to serve the poor around the world in the future)
