January 27, 2017 REALLY HELP OTHERS
Many of us focus too much on where we can spend our money that will benefit or help us. We budget money for food. We plan out paying our bills. We put a little in savings. However, we are also to seek out ways to use our money to help others. When we are blessed with money from God, He wants us to take some of it and share with those in need. When we do that, God will take care of us.
1 Corinthian 10:24 "Don’t be concerned for your own good but for the good of others." (NLT)
1. List the ways you spend your money.
2. Write down ways you can use money to help others.
3. Go out and do good and help others.
4. Trust in God to meet your needs as you meet the needs of others.
Dear Lord, we know You will take care of us. You created us and love us. Help us not to be so concerned about our needs but instead look out for the needs of others. You tell us to help others. You tell us to do good. Show us ways we can use the money You have blessed us with to help others. In Jesus' name. Amen.
God wants us to use the money He has blessed us with to help others.
When we keep all our money for ourselves, we are not living in obedience to God.
We are to be more concerned about the needs of others than we are our own needs.
We can trust in God to meet our needs as we use what we have to help others.
When we see people in need, we should reach out and help them.
Proverbs 3:27 "Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it's in your power to help them." (NLT)
We all have some ability to help others. Let's look for ways to do so today.
