Do you despise the church of God by humiliating those who have nothing?
I Corinthians 11:22 (NIV)
Paul was concerned about the selfish practices of some of those that were coming to their Christian fellowship and worship service. They were being gluttons, getting drunk and totally ignoring the needs of the poor that were there. It was a form of discrimination that angered Paul and brought shame to Jesus Himself. Paul wrote to them saying that humiliating the poor by ignoring their needs, flaunting their riches in front of them and not having compassion on them was the same as despising the church and bringing disgrace upon it. God cares for the poor and needy. The question is, “Do we?”
Father, forgive me for ignoring those in need and bringing shame to You and Your church. Help me to care and share the way that brings glory to Your name.
