I know a man named Paul; he lived and lives even now, who taught a simple way, he lead many to a path so narrow with bumps and pitfalls ,but righteousness was the goal. Now many in this time talk of wealth and how Gods wants them rich but reject the truth of sacrifice and others talk of alters of how we need to punish and rid the way of anything we deem vile, Yet few now teach or talk about the man or woman the God, the creator does so seek, is them? In their zealous pride sitting hauty in that special Sunday chair with cloths so clean hair so neat ready to stand and sing amazing grace then give a buck perhaps two and feel that they have done their do diligences of Christ like service. However have you look with this place at others not dressed in splendor who with cast down eyes sit hidden in the back? You see you give to missions you give and praise your churches work while your brother goes with out lives in lack and great want. Your pearls they are cast to those who worship demons while at home those in need must beg from government. Its odd that you refuse to see this need; you never ask why did they leave, perhaps they were ashamed ?
Christ said I am with you for a while but the poor are with you always; once the brothers took up collections to make sure none among them were in lack or want. Its odd how this caring for the needs of the brethren is now turn into a mission to buy new members when so many are in want and need wondering why their church will not give them aid.
I saw a church do all it could for family’s who did not attend they used it as a babysitting service, while a family which did attend was growing poor and in much need. The church it built a new porch for this family who would not work nor pray. While it own did need what they did give away. Floods did come and it washed away the house but not the porch the family left and never thanked the church. The member thus in need their car it died , yet no one came to ask why are you not here? The member was ashamed for feeling anger and jealousy, but the thing they needed the love, the help, his church family gave away to hogs and pigs who did not care or love the lord.
So look around your church this week did you let your brother go away in need?
For if you had it with in your power to give aid to help and simply said farewell be well what does that say of you?
My storys true it happened and somewhere in some other church concerned with build giving to India or some other land brothers and sisters are in lack in want and all the while their church family says buck up smile we are doing Gods will. well Gods will was that you care for your family and as the heathen saw they would come and ask and then you’d tell.
with broken and contrite hearts we come to thee asking for insight wisdom and true strength. a dog returns to its vomit and a pig seeks out its wallow. But a soul is lost when those around them can not render aid; for your family should have no need to ask you; you should know just what they need. How ASK..
