It is very easy in our sinful nature to hoard what we have been given and fill our own barns without helping others. This is especially true when times become tough and when we don’t know what is around the corner. Throughout the Word of God we are taught how He is the provider and when we fall to only thinking of ourselves by not helping others that are in need then we are guilty of sin! Our Father in Heaven has given us everything we have to help someone else along the Way, and it when we fall in the darkness of this evil world that we can blind others who can’t see the proper Way.
In the book of 2 Corinthians 9 we are taught how to give and it is our job to help those that are in need. By just dropping our tithes in the offering plate does mean we have done our part! As a true Christian we are to go the extra mile in everything we do and be on alert to recognize the different type of signs that come from those that are in need. Giving is not always a financial gift, sometimes it is just showing someone that we really do care by giving them some quality time to hear what is on their heart and to place your arms around them to give them comfort in a time of need.
I challenge you today and every other day to help others along the way however the Lord directs you. People are hurting in their hearts all around us and looking for direction because they don’t know how to reach out for help, and all it takes is to give that helping hand to show others that you truly believe in God’s plan. Don’t allow someone in need to walk by you today or any other day when you can help them in some way…amen
