Concerned

The godly care about the rights of the poor; the wicked don’t care at all. (NLT) -Proverbs 29:7 Righteous means to be morally right or justifiable. God’s view of what is “morally right” includes being concerned for the rights of the poor in our communities. He judges us by how we treat the most down and out in our society. Interestingly, in American Christianity we talk a lot more about righteous living that is inwardly focused. We focus on virtues such as honesty, hard work, or faithfulness; which all are characteristics the Bible promotes. Sometimes we don’t spend as much time talking about how we or systems in our society are treating the poor and needy. Proverbs highlights the importance of our engagement rather than ignorance on these issues. God’s heart is for the least of these.
