    This first verse is very true. By helping the poor, you will also be compensated.
  • Irving
    The bible declares that the poor, we will have with us always,and as long as we are in this body, to avoid sickness, we must put good food in it, exercise it, and give it rest, as well as pray or speak over it, and decree wholeness as you fill your spirit with the word of God. Sometime, the body will still have physical issues.if we are living like kingdom people, because we love like Jesus love,

    The first verse always reminds me of what God says; that we will have poor among us always. I know that God will bless those who show compassion for the poor.
  • Bill May
    The first verse encourages others to help the poor with a favorable promise May this touch the hearts of many, not for the promise, but because of compassion for others. It touched mine.
