Daily devotional: Eyes shut to poverty?

Scripture
He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses.
Proverbs 28:27 NIV

Observation
This is a clear proverb. I worry that there is too much poverty I close my eyes to, and not enough I choose to do.

Application
Pray for discernment and the Holy Spirit's prompting to be a conduit of giving and a faithful steward of the resources He has entrusted to me.

Prayer
Lord, I love you. Thank you for blessing me so richly in many regards. Open our eyes to the poor. Show us opportunities to bless those with less financial means, and please help us make wise financial stewardship decisions rather than keep more for ourselves than You want.
