“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
Jesus came to bring good news to the poor. He did not come to side with the rich and powerful, but to help those struggle and suffer. Let us also view others through God’s eyes. The poor are valuable, have much to contribute and teach us, and are precious in God’s eyes. May we too be agents of good news for the poor.
Lord, help me to see others and treat others as you would, especially those who are weak and vulnerable.
