Remember the poor

Galatians 2:10 says 'All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along.' What does it mean to 'remember the poor'?

Today, when I went to the supermarket, there were volunteers from the local foodbank. I'd heard that they were going to be there and was looking forward to doing my part, so I was pleased when I was handed a shopping list and asked to buy something from it to donate.

I ended up buying two extra bags of food to donate. It felt pleased to have done my part. I also felt quite humbled.

Remembering the poor keeps us humble. And serving humbly is one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had.
