We are all blessed with material blessings. When wealth increases for some it can often mean greater suffering for others unless there is a priority given to justice and generosity. God has put within us a desire to relieve the suffering of others and to offer thanks for God’s benevolence toward us. Most of all we are inspired by Jesus and given a new mind and heart as we receive him into our lives.
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.” 2 Corinthians 8:9
