Philippians 4:14
Financial Support

14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.

To share what we have with others in their time of need
Is not just a real obligation
It involves us being part of their work when we heed
The Spirit’s call to ease their situation.

For the sake of the Gospel and obeying God’s call
They find themselves in narrow financial straits
I should identify with them and seek any way at all
To help them and lift from them some weights.
As they go out to reach people living far away
To communicate with them starts with me
They need food to eat, there are bills to pay
They have expenses that I will never see.

I know they will never ask for help or plead their poverty
And really, they should have their needs supplied
I can take some time each day to consider the reality
Of expenses that occur they from me will hide.

When laborers go forth in their services for the Lord
They deserve from us who know them, our real support
We are in a place where survival is not too hard
And our list of obligations we can keep short.

Often they supply some food and medical care
For poverty-stricken people where they labor
By our financial support, we in their work can share
The load of their outreaching endeavor.

“Place on my heart today Father, some workers that, at present, are in need of encouragement and support. In whatever way we can, whether financially or in person, help us to come alongside and lift their load. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”
