Our attitude toward Jesus is manifested in our attitude toward the poor. It is clear that Jesus sees things this way.
If your children come to your table for supper and one of them has an empty plate, would you not want the others to put some of their food on it? How could God be any less compassionate than you in this regard?
The only difference is that your children can see you and thus discern your approval when they share and disapproval when they don’t. However, by faith in His word, we can “see” God’s approval or disapproval just as well.
Examine your attitude toward to the poor and you will find the degree of your faith in, and love for, Jesus.
