Giving To The One Who Asks
Isaiah 58:6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen ... to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?”
Oh. My. Goodness.
This video turned me into an emotional wreck. Truly. Oh, the gamut of emotions this yanked me through! (Like, even though the bartender was an actor, oh! His words made me livid.)
People at their best and people at their worst. Gah.
Such a wake-up call for us all. The best way to spend 8 of your minutes on this day.
Matthew 5:42 “Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.”
2 Corinthians 9:6-9 “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
