Psalm 41:11 Fortunate is one who has insight about of the poor; Yahveh will save him in a day of adversity.
Psalm 41:2 Yahveh will keep him and preserve him; he will be blessed in the land. You will not give him over to the throat of his enemies.
Psalm 41:3 Yahveh will reinforce him on his sickbed; you will heal him on the bed where he lies.
insight about of the poor
The king has discovered that poverty in his kingdom is not something to ignore or to be embarrassed about. It is an opportunity to help. In fact, he has found a direct connection between his own acts of charity and God’s choice to deliver him from his enemies. He talked about having insight about the poor. Part of that insight must be that God is watching to see that those of us who have something are willing to share with those who have less. Another part seems to be that God will treat us in our time of need with the same consideration that we have shown to those around us who have need today.
Lord, give us opportunity today to demonstrate your love to the needy.
