“Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body” (Hebrews 13:3).Text — Hebrew 13:1-3
Assisting the needy is copiously commanded in the Bible, which is also replete with precepts and practices in obedience to divine injunctions. But as selfishness, materialism and worldliness continue in their ever-raging war against our souls, many modern-day Christians are increasingly ignoring this call. However, John Wesley said, “Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as you ever can.”
Yes, indeed, “We can’t help everyone, but… everyone can help someone,” says Dr. Loretta Scott. Your little show of compassion by sharing the gospel, your food, clothing, shelter, knowledge, skills, and other resources might encourage some distressed souls. It could be the only opportunity someone may have to feel the love of Jesus. Sharing the gospel of Christ is even a command in the Bible which should be obeyed. You should share it directly or indirectly through the various social media handles.
Everyone can help someone
Invest in eternity by assisting the needy.
