'Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.' -Proverbs 22:9
I love the phrase 'bountiful eye' in this passage. The author illustrates beautifully a person who is seeking for opportunities to serve the poor. Furthermore, he says that we will be blessed when this is the position of our heart.
James 1:27 reads, 'Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you,'
During this fast, how can you serve the poor? How might God be calling you to care for the less fortunate around you?
