The Best Christmas Present
If the God is almighty but He is indifferent with human beings or He does not care about any human being, who would pray to the God asking any help from Him?
But if the God is almighty; has power over fates of every human being; and has any concern about every human being, who would not pray to Him asking any help from Him?
If the God never cared for Jewish people, no Jewish people would show belief and respect to the God.
But if a man was in a predicament, he would most probably ask help from the God even if he is not sure about whether or not He would help him, since it is most likely that there is the God who has power to save any human being.
So, first of all, a man has to believe that there is the God, He is almighty, He could save any man, and He might hear him asking help from the God, and secondly the man has to actually ask the God to help him.
Ro:10:13: For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.However, it is unlikely that the God would save a man who does not completely or mostly follow the words of the God. However, it is not clear how much one must follow the words of the God to be saved by the God. Ideally, one must follow 100% the words of the God, but benevolent God might overlook some failures of a man in complying with the words of the God, especially, if one regrets.
In reality, there are not many reports that one was saved in any ways by the God through his or her prayers to the God; however there are some.
In this context, the fact that Christ Jesus came to this world to save poor people while they were not asking so crucially the God to send His Son to them and save them is a proof that the God cared for men or loved men.
No matter how much rich and happy one is, he or she must have something to ask from the God. Then, all the more, poor people must have more to ask from the God. And from the words of Christ Jesus, the God seems to love poor people more than rich and happy people. However, it does not mean that the God would make the poor materially richer than the rich in this world. The God does not either make the poor materially happier than the rich in this world. Nonetheless, it is said that the God would help and save poor men who pray to the God asking help.
There must be various ways of saving a poor man in a predicament. Ultimately, the God should save a poor man by allowing him to enter Heaven and obtain eternal life, which would make him spiritually richer and happier than any rich man in this world.
Conversely, Satan may give money to those who sell their souls to him and betray the God, making them materially rich and happy in this world. But those bad, rich, and happy people are condemned to the hell. So, it is no wonder that some believers of the God try to be poorer and unhappier materially than anybody in this world to show their hate to Satan and reverence to the God or Christ Jesus.
And for such devout believers, poverty and unhappiness in this world may be the best present from the God, since they will be promised to be accepted in Heaven by the God since they are free from Satan as they are poor and unhappy. So, for some stern Christians or followers of Christ Jesus, poverty and unhappiness must be the best Christmas present.
