'She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.' Proverbs 31:20 NIV
Giving to the poor is an instruction in the Bible, but it is more than just writing a cheque. Financially giving is important, but relationships are more so.
By Mr. KrisIn today's verse we see our proverbs woman extending herself to those in need whether they be poor, sick or old. This is about being a light to someone you know in your community. It may only be a short term need or a call of a longer duration.
It doesn't need to be something that demands a new skill, it could be offering a skill or gift that you already have, such as gardening or giving a prepared meal.
Most importantly listen. Very simply ask how you could be of help.
