    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.

    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.

    God is good a the time all we have to do is to love him back and trust God. Keep praising God and thanking him for everything he have done into our lives. There is no other Jehovah its only Jesus our Savior and our King. I love you Lord and i will worship you only for you are worthy to be praised. Ame

    God is a good god at all times

    This chapter is very similar to Job 's experience during his sickness. Those that are the closest to you seem TO THINK that they know more about you than you know about yourself. You can count on that particular brand of person to judge you wrongly. For example when a devout, Godly person becomes sick, hurt, or bedridden, the close friends will say that the cause is sin God is angry, or it 's payback. We have to be careful not to judge others, unless we be found to be a liar.
