Share Your Wealth With Your Less Fortunate Brethren
"Command those who are rich in this present world
not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth,
which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God,
who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds,
and to be generous and willing to share.
In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves
as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they
may take hold of the life that is truly life."
1 Timothy 6: 17- 19
Let us make ourselves channels of God's blessings to our less fortunate brethren, not withholding the help that we can extend to them. Our treasures are not of this world but in the kingdom of God where our reward for our good deeds await us. Freely give as we have freely received from the Lord.
