25 I was young and now I am old,
yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken
or their children begging bread.
26 They are always generous and lend freely;
their children will be a blessing. Psalm 37:25-26
This was King David’s experience, but for many around the world, it isn’t theirs. I’ve written many times in this space that very bad things happen to very good people. Very bad leaders put Christians out on the street and force them to beg…or worse. To say otherwise is being dishonest about the world we live in.
However, the principle remains: God will not forsake His children. Their children will be a blessing both to them and to others. It does give us an opportunity to pray for those in desperate circumstances.
Open a newspaper and look at the turmoil around the world. Choose a country and pray. Ask God what He wants you to do about the plight of your Brothers and Sisters.
