Spiritually Rich

God helps those who help the poor

Doesn’t God care that I’m poor?

But to the poor, O Lord, you are a refuge from the storm. To the needy in distress, you are a shelter from the rain and the heat. For the oppressive acts of ruthless people are a storm beating against a wall, or like the relentless heat of the desert. But you silence the roar of foreign nations. You cool the land with the shade of a cloud. So the boastful songs of ruthless people are stilled.

Isaiah 25:4-5
Stay away from the love of money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you, I will never forsake you.”

Hebrews 13:5
Can anything separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or are hungery or cold or in danger or threatened with death?…No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

Romans 8:35-37

All the silver

In his book, The Life of Johnson, James Boswell describes how Johnson would frequently give all the silver in his pocket to the poor, who watched him, between his house and the tavern where he dined. Johnson would walk the streets at all hours and said he was never robbed, for the rogues knew he had little money, nor the appearance of having much.
