Help Someone In Need Today!

It is easy for us to become consumed with our own interests in a way that causes us to neglect our Christian humanity to others.

Might I suggest to you that helping someone in need can be helpful to you? Not only is the principle of sowing and reaping involved but God has wired us with the need to contribute constructively and in turn benefit from all the “feel-goods” that result.

The Bible is filled with encouragements toward our Christian duty to others.

Consider the following:

1. To be tilted in the direction of benevolence.

Isaiah 58:7Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh?

• You will in life need someone to lean your way.

2. To be inclined to be helpful.

Acts 20:35…have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.

“If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not have lived in vain. If I can ease one life the aching or cool one pain or help one fainted Robin in his nest again, I shall not have lived in vain.” – Emily Dickinson

3. To be willing to bear burdens.

Romans 15:1We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

Galatians 6:2Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

• Compassion expressed lightens the load.

4. To be unhardened so that one can feel for the unfortunate.

Hebrews 13:3Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

I Peter 3:8Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous.

Today, let’s turn our attention away from ourselves and toward those God would bring to our attention and let’s do acts of Christian humanity.

Remember, always give God the glory!

Peace and blessings!

    Amen!
    We as Christians need to be an example and Christ like in the way we treat others. So many are hardened and unfeeling today towards those less fortunate. God has shown his grace to us and we should show the same grace to others.
