God's Daily Promises for Leaders Poor Proverbs 19:17 Remember we all have someone watching/following us. When we help the poor we are doing the will of God. To help means to do more than pray for the poor, it means to take action. Give of your finances or give of your time to help the poor, or do both. There are blessings that come when we re obedient to the will of God. Your not sure? Then give to those who are less fortunate than you and you will find out.
