A Proverb A Day Keeps Stupidity Away XXIX

CHPT 29 v. 7

 The righteous considers the cause of the poor, 
      But the wicked does not understand such knowledge.

Can you be a Christian and not consider the plight of the poor?
Can you indulge yourself and satisfy every want you have, ignore the needy and still claim to follow Christ?
Let's look at the second part.
King Solomon says that there is knowledge in contemplating the plight of the poor.
Does this mean that because you see poor people that you are wise?
Or does it mean your ability to put yourself in their shoes makes you smart?
Or does it mean that an understanding of their situation gives you wisdom?

I don't know.
The one thing I have learned this month is that there is much that I do not know about a lot of things soooo let us pray and just ask God to give us wisdom to understand it all.

PRAYER: Wisdom is what I ask for this day.
