One said to a minister who preached a sermon, after which there was to be a collection, "You should preach to our hearts, and then you would get some money." The minister replied, "Yes, I think that is very likely, for that is where you keep your money." –Spurgeon
But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. 1 Timothy 5:8
Many have lost their way in the area of finances. They believe it is better to hoard up and save for a rainy day rather than to invest in their family, their community, or even in the House of God. The god of money has got them blinded to what is important. There was a time when family stuck together and took care of one another…not so much anymore.
Friend do you have family TRULY in need; help them out. Do you have friends TRULY in need; help them out. Does someone in your community TRULY have needs; help them out. If you don’t…don’t EXPECTa handout if you’re ever in need because you may not get one!
