I think often times people will not realize when they are “Oppressing the Poor.” To oppress basically means to keep someone in hardship and when we ignore the needy around us that’s just what we are doing. There are many forms of neediness, some of which get overlooked. There are people who are physically needy( they lack the basic necessities of life), emotionally needy( some scars or baggage in the past is keeping them from living their current life) and Spiritual needy( they need to know that Jesus is their Savior.) How do we be kind to these people? By following Jesus’ example. Throughout scripture He addressed needs as they came about, not pushing them aside. We need to ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the needy people around us and show us what we can do to help.
