The righteous is concerned for the rights of the poor,
The wicked does not understand such concern.

Proverbs 29:7

What would happen if suddenly everyone had an equal amount of money? Would all wars and conflicts cease, and would everyone be happy? Tragically, the answer is no. Some people would still be driven by greed, constantly wanting more — and devising schemes to gain it. Others would spend their money unwisely, ending up in poverty before they realized it.

Why is this? The problem is the human heart. We are by nature selfish and sinful, and as long as this is the case, our problems will never be completely solved. The Bible says, “What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?” (James 4:1).

This is why our greatest need is to turn to Christ, for only He can change our hearts and plant within us a new love for others. And this can happen to you, as you open your heart and life to His transforming power. Don’t put your trust in solutions that will ultimately fail, but commit your life to Christ, and then ask Him to help you see the world and its needs through His eyes.
