I tracked down that reference from a Virginia pastor using Genesis 47:13-27 during a sermon and I found that it has been recycled as a new article several times since 2009, but I can not find any actual originating article. My instincts tell me that the entire article was a fabrication and that someone simply attributed to a pastor at a predominantly black Virginia church to lend credibility to their story.
If the alleged sermon resonated with you then that is great, if you disagreed with it then that is your right as well and equally as great.
I would like to leave you with the following bible versus on the subject of helping the poor since so many want to pervert the bible
"During the seventh year, let the land lie unplowed and unused. Then the poor among your people may get food from it, and the wild animals may eat what they leave. Do the same with your vineyard and your olive grove." Exodus 23:11
"If one of your countrymen becomes poor and sells some of his property, his nearest relative is to come and redeem what his countryman has sold. . . . If one of your countrymen becomes poor and is unable to support himself among you,
help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you. . . . If one of your countrymen becomes poor among you and sells himself to you, do not make him work as a slave." Leviticus 25:25, 35, 39
"If there is a poor man among your brothers in any of the towns of the land that the LORD your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward your poor brother." Deuteronomy 15:7
"A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor." Proverbs 22:9
"He who oppresses the poor to increase his wealth and he who gives gifts to the rich — both come to poverty." Proverbs 22:16
"Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court." Proverbs 22:22
"A ruler who oppresses the poor is like a driving rain that leaves no crops." Proverbs 28:3
"He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses." Proverbs 28:27
I could keep going, but I think that I made my point. Those among us who deny help to those in need are making their own destiny. We all can give a little more then we do now to help our fellow Americans, especially those who are at the top.
