Whoever despises his neighbor is a sinner, but blessed is he who is generous to the poor (Proverbs 14:21, ESV). Those who are of shallow substance, those who have a quality of character that is as deep as half-inch rain’s mud puddle are the quickest to lose interest in the well-being of another, especially one who is poor. In fact, as the Lord looks at it, there is no way that such a person can be saved in that state of mind. It is a state of mind that lacks love. How does one love another if there is no interest in the other person? On the other hand, those who are generous in their material goods are in great position to be generous in their words that are full of love and teaching. All this for a great purpose.
