In Psalm twelve, verses five and six, David writes, “The Lord replies, ‘I have seen violence done to the helpless, and I have heard the groans of the poor. Now I will rise up to rescue them, as they have longed for me to do.’ The Lord’s promises are pure, like silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times over.”
I love how in these verses David compares God’s promises to ‘silver refined in a furnace’. Throughout the Bible God and Christ are presented as champions of the poor, and this is something that is stressed over and over. Jesus tells us repeatedly in the Gospels that we need to be careful not to chase after material things in this life, but to worry about the state of our souls and to wait to enjoy the riches of the spiritual world instead.
Jesus tells us to help the poor, and to give of ourselves in whatever way we can to help those who are less fortunate. Christ’s teachings always underscore that mercy is something we should constantly try to cultivate, and his act of mercy for humanity by incarnating here and putting himself in fatal peril in order to bring us the message of Salvation through repentance and forgiveness of sin the greatest act of mercy imaginable.
