Proverbs -- The Mark of Compassion

The righteous is concerned for the rights of the poor, the wicked does not understand such concern (Proverbs 29:7).

One of the main characteristics of a Christian is compassion for the needy, for the poor. Selfishness marks the life of the wicked and they do not understand why a follower of Christ seeks to put others and their needs before his own. As Christians we are to be concerned “to study the needs” of the poor, not just to give a glance, but to be so filled with compassion that we study and know their need and then seek to do something about it in Christ's name.
