Do you desire to remember the poor?

Galatians Bible Background

To read the Bible in a year, read Galatians 2 on September 24, In the year of our Lord 2016

By Don Ruhl

What do you think of the poor, especially in America? Who are the poor truly? What do you think about helping them? Do you have the same view of the poor as the Scriptures do?

When Paul met with James, Peter, and John, they urged him to do something that he was eager to do,

They desired only that we should remember the poor, the very thing which I also was eager to do (Galatians 2.10). 

Truly, many of the poor are not poor, and they turn us off, but I think that most of us want to help people, although we do not want people to take advantage of us.


  • Do you think as the Bible does on the subject of the poor?
