Community Service

by PammyMcB

I know many people give and help as much as they can, even if the do not have the money to. Normally, if they know someone is in need and do not have the money to give, they find other ways to do so. There are many different ways to give. There are many people that I am acquainted with that give food if they have extra, give clothing to those in need, and helped with healthcare. There are others that may be blessed with a car and give rides to others who do not. There are many different ways for us to be a service to our communities. I think that God meant for those that are less fortunate to do whatever they can, when they don’t have the money to give. We all must be kind.

“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” (NIV James 2:14-17)

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” (NIV Galatians 6:10)

“Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” (NIV Romans 12:13)

“Then I said to them, “You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.” I also told them about the gracious hand of my God on me and what the king had said to me.” (NIV Nehemiah 2:17-18)
