“There I will provide for you, lest you and your household, and all that you have, come to poverty; for there are still five years of famine.” ’”
-Poverty Hebrew is written as machsor & it means scarcity, deficiency, needy or paucity.
-Joseph the governor of Egypt was willing to support his father & his household 2 years into the drought. He was heard crying over his brothers probably as a sign of forgiveness & reconciliation to them having thrown him into a pit & sold him as a slave. The same way he had the wisdom to preserve grain for years, he took the responsibility of preserving the lives of his family members lest poverty consumes them. In the book of 1 Timothy 5:8; we see that anyone who does not provide for his own, & especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith & is worse than an unbeliever. During this season of lent, we are reminded to offer help to those in need in our own families ie. our parents, grand parents, spouses, children, siblings & all those in need in the quest of true Christianity. In giving whatever form of support to others, God will surely bless us according to the riches of His mercies.
Lord our Savior & Father we thank You for Your everlasting mercy & love upon our lives & families. Remember Oh Lord all those who are suffering in lack & poverty that You may provide for them their daily bread & sustainable jobs to enable them support their dependents. Give us Father a generous heart so that we may give always to those in need & to be reconciled to our families. Look kindly upon us Lord & shower us with Your blessings according to the riches of Your mercy & grace. All glory, honor, power, riches, strength & wisdom belong to You Lord; forever & ever. Amen
