“Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.” (Mat 5:42)

How are we asked to respond to those in need around us? What is our response to be to those who ask for help? Give and do not turn away. As we open our hands, we open our hearts. As we walk in obedience, we open our hearts and our hands follow suit. It is a virtuous cycle of love and giving.

If we live our lives this way, God will pour out His provision as He finds vessels willing to be His hands and His feet with His heart. Ministering to those around us is not only telling them about Jesus but also demonstrating His heart by meeting the needs of those who need help.

Quick Prayer: I am available to bless someone today. Send me someone who needs help. Amen.
