The other day I was speaking with another individual who called me to share his pain. He could not understand why no one in the church nor in his own family would offer to help him when he was in need. The pastor whom he spoke with offered no help when he had no food in using the excuse that all their extra funds were being used to build their new facility. His own family would not help him either when he was in need nor even offer him something out of their deep freeze.
This man was not bitter about this lack of obedience in the Word of God nor asking me for anything in return but he just could not understand when he was truly in need how no one give him a helping hand. He went on to share how these same people used to be there for him when he had something to give them in return but now that he is the one in need that these same ones have turned their backs but they still claim to believe.
The Word of God teaches us to help those in the family of God and the Lord even tells us not to charge interest to our brothers and sisters in Christ. How far have we drifted from properly serving the people because we care more about what we can get in return? God blesses us to bless others and not to only feed ourselves. I challenge you today to go out of your way and help someone that is in need and show the love of Jesus Christ in whom you believe…amen
For God blesses us when we bless others and it is not the blessings that we receive on the outside but the true love that is gained on the inside…
