“God, the Poor, and Generous Justice” by Dr. Joseph

“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—when you already have it with you.” — Proverbs 3:27-28

“God, the Poor, and Generous Justice” by Dr. Joseph

In Part 1 of the Three-Part series entitled “God, the Poor, and Generous Justice,” Dr. Joseph discusses some biblical texts that reveal God’s heart for the poor and attitude toward justice and economic justice. The same way God remembers the poor and the oppressed, followers of Christ are called to diligently serve the poor and the needy, and to remember the unfortunate and the underprivileged in our churches, communities, and the world at large. Further, Dr. Joseph invites us to consider five biblical and theological principles that encourage and ultimately urge Christians to be engaged in social outreach and social justice ministries, and to empower and care for the poor and the needy; this attitude is a reflection of God’s character and the loving message of the Gospel.
