We have a choice when it comes to responding to others.

Old Testament Commands

  • Prov. 21:13 – There are consequences for stinginess
  • Prov 22:9 – There are blessings for sharing
  • Prov. 28:27- There are consequences for our actions

Sharing What we Have

  • Acts 3:6 – Share in Jesus’ name
  • Romans 12:4-9a – We give from what God has given to each of us.  We have more than money to give.   We have bee given incredible Spiritual wealth.

A Compassionate Heart

  • 1 John 3:16-18 – We must develop the love that mimics the love God has for us.  God sent Jesus to give us a way out of sin.  When we see some one in need we must respond as God did to us.
