Wisdom and the Poor

The text today comes from various verses in Proverbs. God has a special heart for the poor. As Isaiah 61 says, Jesus came to bring good news to the poor, bring liberty to the captives and set the oppressed free. Proverbs gives us an overview of why God cares so much about the poor and why Jesus’ followers should have the same concern for the poor. “Wisdom and the Poor” is part of our Living with Competence-A Look at Proverbs series.
