New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 16, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Religious focus Hurald-Zeitung Friday, August 16,1985 BA God answers with love, blessings Briefly By REV RON WALTER St. Paul Lutheran Church Their stories are not unusual. In fact, they have become common place. Adeline is 76. Her $150 monthly Social Security check has never been quite enough. She barely survives from day to day. Bill is the husband of four He recently lost his job. He is now 52. Because of his age, no one wants to hire him. Marie moved with her family to the city. They hopr*d to find work and a new life there. Thousands of others like her live in the city. They have no place to go, nothing to eat, no hope in sight. Ahmed and his family live in the Sudan. People there struggle to get enough to eat. Ahmed and his family are not starving yet. The problem for Ahmed and thousands like him, they live in a continual state of undernourishment. Jesus once said that the poor will alw ays be with us. His words are still true today. But why? Why it is that we have half of the world living in affluence, sometimes wasting more than they eat, while the other half expends all their energy simply trying to stay alive from one day to the next. Again the question, why? Is it because people resent the poor? Is it becasue they are brought up hearing their parents say "The poor are shiftless, lazy, unwilling to help themselves.” Even if we do not resort to such attacks, for many, the people who live in poverty are strangers, aliens. Most of us could not name IO poor people if we tried. They do not attend our churches. They do not belong to the same organizations we do. They do not shop where we shop. They are totally different from us. Yet, strangely enough, the Bible seems to indicate that God is on the side of the poor. He seems to identify with them, not us. Listen to the words Mary spoke in Luke I, "He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree; He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent away empty.” Jesus was equally clear on the subject, "Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.” and "I was hungry and you gave me food, I was naked and you clothed me.” What do we say to all this? Why should the poor be so favored by God. Some think the answer is more and greater community appeals. "If we give more baskets of food at Thanksgiving and Christmas, more and larger relief checks, maybe it will go away." That is not the point at all! As long as we continue to divide people into the rich and the poor, we continue to draw barriers between human beings. Worship at the church of your choiceLocal.

He does not send us a check. He does not write us a nice letter. He shows us love. He comes and lives in our midst. He walks our streets and becomes a part of the world. This is the message that scripture gives us. We must love the poor, not just pity them. We must share with them our most precious possession, the Gospel of Jesus. Of course, if we love them we will also share with them our blessings. We cannot share the bread and wine of communion with the poor and not also share the meat and potatoes of daily life. We cannot talk to them about heavenly mansions without also being concerned about their earthly slums. And that is not easy. There is a wall between the haves and have-nots. There is suspicion on both sides. But we. too, were poor in God's grace until he filled us with the good things of the gospel. And now we must share that love w ith others. As long as there are poor in this world, we have work to do. For the poor witness to the sin and brokenness of our world and they test our faith in the love and compassion of our gracious heavenly Father. Tteart pf (Sount/y Anliqu** (s (lift* 86 E.
