Job 24

“Behold…the poor go out to their toil, seeking game; the wasteland yields food for their children…They lie all night naked, without clothing, and have no covering in the cold” (v5-7). Job saw that the wealthy often took advantage of the poor, seizing their fields and even snatching children away from their mothers (v9). Job lamented that the wicked seemed to prosper; however, “they are exalted a little while, and then are gone” (v24). God cares, He sees, and He will accomplish justice.

Jesus proclaimed “good news to the poor” (Luke 4:17), demonstrating to us all that our Savior came to do something about suffering. As His Body, we are called to share His active compassion.
