Proverbs 17:5. Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
Thought for the Day: Those That Offend The Poor Are Offending God
Reflection for the Day: The Pain Of His Children Matters To God
A spirit that is indifferent to the needs of the poor, and one that takes joy at the struggles of others is not consistent with the spirit of the Lord. As the Lord is a merciful God so must we show mercy to those in need, even to those that have caused their own misfortune. As the pain of His children impacts the Lord so should it impact us.
As we observe suffering and pain around us we should seek, not to mock, but to bring comfort. To rejoice at one's calamity is not consistent with the spirit of the Lord. Insist, as you walk with the Lord, to demonstrate a spirit of love and compassion, knowing that those that mock the poor are a reproach to our maker.
