By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. 1 John 5:2 Holy Bible King James Version
That we faithfully are obedient to keep His commandments. It is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35 Holy Bible King James Version
We are to be charitable while doing so with wisdom.
There are too many bleeding hearts out there that want you to give money to help those who refuse to help themselves.
How many in say Africa breed like flies on dung piles and then cry to those in the western world to give them money. If they cannot support their children do not have them. Why should we support a destructive lifestyle? When I was doing missionary work in Central America they kept on telling me I should be married and have lots of children so that when I get old the children will support me. When I asked them how much they helped their parents they looked at me in shock and informed me they had no money to help their parents. Then they told me because I was rich (which I was not) that I owed them and had to give them money.
It is the same with these TV evangelists who are always crying for money. I used to listen to a few on the internet. Before the show they cry that they need money. Then, at the end they are talking about how you will have a great time with them on some cruise. Excuse me but if they can afford to go on cruises why do they need my money. I say they should publicly reveal their wages if they publicly ask for money.
For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10 Holy Bible New International Version
Do not give to the lazy. There are too many welfare bums that are capable of working but are too lazy to do so and expect the hard working of society to support their laziness. How many are also involved in drugs and alcohol? Serving as a volunteer in soup kitchens I saw a lot of this.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our father) bless me to imitate Your divine love to everyone today so as to be an obedient child but to give wisely not foolishly. I request this in the name of Your most loving son Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
