Still reading through the Bible this year.
Now I'm up to Deuteronomy 15....
and daily there is stuff in the reading that is relevant to the times.
Like this paragraph:
"If there is a poor man among your brothers
in any of the towns of the land that the Lord your God is giving you,
do not be hard hearted or tightfisted toward your poor brother.
Rather be openhanded and freely lend him whatever he needs....
Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart;
because of this
the Lord your God will bless you in all your work
in everything you put your hand to.
There will always be poor people in the land.
Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers
and toward the poor and needy in your land." (:7-11)
May our open hearts
lead to open hands.....
and an open heaven over us all.
