2012-09-18 - Responsibility to Help Others
The Epistles of John ~ Part 62 ~ 1 John
The second point we need to take from this passage is that our responsibility to care for one another means that we are to use what the Lord provides for us for others as well. Whether this means we give of money, possessions, time, etc., what we have from the Lord is to be used for Him.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?' The King will reply, `I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me'" (Matthew 25:35-40).
I Shall Not Pass Again This Way.
