The Proverbs have much to say about helping the poor and needy, as I read Proverbs 14 this morning the following verses jumped out at me as I thought about the devastation and needs in Haiti at this time. What is the wisdom reponse?
Proverbs 14:9b "but goodwill is found among the upright"
Proverbs 14:14 "The faithless will be fully repaid for their ways,and the good man rewarded for his."
Proverbs 14:21 "He who despises his neighbor sins, but blessed is he who is kind to the needy.
Proverbs 14:31 "He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God."
I would suggest there will be plenty of ways we can help through many different organizations. The wise will find one and do it.
