I've been thinking about staying in Penticton - and the "mission/ service/ ministry" God has given me among the street people. And then tonight I read:
Deut 15:4... there shall be no poor among you, since the LORD will surely bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you... 7. If there is a poor man with you, one of your brothers... you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand from your poor brother... 8 but you shall freely open your hand to him and shall generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks....10 You shall generously give to him, and your heart shall not be grieved... because for this thing the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in all your undertakings.
Psalm 113:5 Who is like the LORD our God, Who is enthroned on high, 6 Who humbles Himself to behold the things that are in heaven and on earth? 7. He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap, 8. to make them sit with princes, with the princes of His people. 9.... Praise the LORD!
