Give to the Poor and you will be Blessed

17 He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. Proverbs 19:17

Are you feeling generous and compassionate ? This is the time of year when charities and non-profits put out their best pleas for donations and hope to raise the money they need to get through the next year when giving slows down. It’s been a tough year for many people with job changes, personal problems, depression, health troubles, you name it. But the majority of you who are reading this have much to be thankful for, even in times of trials. If God has blessed you with food, clothing, shelter and more, please remember to share with those who do not have those things. God tells us in his Word that if we share with the poor, He will return it to us. I have found this to be a trustworthy proverb!

Pacific Garden Mission is an important ministry to the homeless in Chicago. Lives are truly changed in this place. I have been there and seen it with my own eyes. God is at work here. If you are looking for a place to share , please consider donating to this ministry.

Watch the video below for the amazing testimony of a former suicidal drug addict who was saved by Jesus through the homeless ministry and is now the manager of the addictions recovery program at PGM. While you’re there, sign up for their newsletter. Also check out their radio program of inspiring stories of God bringing freedom to people who were in slavery to their sin. 

And may God bless you for giving!
