SUNDAY SCRIPTURE 11 MAY 2014 SENT BY GHUNAKUMAR GOSPEL FRIENDS P.O. BOX NO.2202, MANDAVELI, CHENNAI 28 SOUTH INDIA
For the past four days I was in Ongole Andhra State ministering among the poorest. I met with the downtrodden in four different villages. Particularly I was so much touched when I saw these people receiving Gods Word with much eagerness and they were delighted to know more about Christ even though the time was about 10.30 pm. Nevertheless I suffered from food poisoning, the ministry got completed to the perfect sense of accomplishment. Thank God. This morning after recovering from weariness, God gave me verses describing who you are if you care for the poorest.
YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS- A righteous man knows the rights of the poor... Pro 29:7 With the righteous man there is consideration for the poor.
YOU ARE VIRTUOUS She opens her hand to the poor and reaches out her hands to the needy.
Pro 31:20 It is more important to reach out to the needy rather than the needy to come.
YOU ARE LENDING TO GOD Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord,
and He will repay him for his deed. Pro.19:17 People have gained by giving for the cause of the poor.
YOU SHALL NO WANT:- Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse. Pro.28:27 We lack nothing if we care for the poor.
YOU HONOR GOD ...he who is generous to the needy honors Him. Pro.14:31
YOU ARE BLESSED:- Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed,
for he shares his bread with the poor. Pro 22:9 Blessed is he who is generous to the poor. Pro14:21
PRAYER :- Thank you Lord, for the privilege of being blessed by you. Give me more generous heart for the poorest. Amen.

PRAY URGENTLY FOR OUR FINANCE SITUATION AND IT LOOKS VERY MUCH IN TROUBLE
FACE THE FACT
My name is Beaula. I come from Sankarankovil village. I have one younger sister and one elder brother. My father became severely ill and died. My mother is working as a tailor. Her income could not provide for the family. Since we face economic problem in the family, my mother struggles a lot to look after three of us. So she brought me to Living Hope. The Director and his family are exceptionally being kind to me. They allowed me to stay here where I can get free education. In school my favorite subject is social studies. I also like to read. Someday I want to be a teacher.
