Wisdom of the Word Wednesday

"But whoever has the world's goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth." 1 John 3:17-18

With the world like it is now, these verses should really resonate with believers. If we have ANYTHING that could be used by others we should not hesitate to give to others who are in need. God will bring people across our paths who have needs that we can meet, if we are aware of the needs and do not meet them, can we truly call ourselves a believer? So many people say, they are a Christian, but do their fruits bear them out? Doing things for others does not make us a Christian, but because we are a Christian we should want to do for others. Everything we have is a gift from God, so why wouldn't we want to share what God has blessed us with, with others? 

Take a look around you, is there a need that you are aware of that you can help with. If there is, don't hesitate to bless someone with what God has blessed you with. Don't hoard your blessings, give freely and you will be blessed, as well as those who you share with. Also, don't forget that blessings come in MANY forms, not just material things or money. You can share your time, talents, "ears", you name it.
