“If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?” – 1 John 3:17
Can we talk about how convicted I am by this verse? I think back on all of the times I’ve passed up an opportunity to help out someone less fortune & I’m embarrassed. The society that we live in is all about convenience and sometimes it just feels inconvenient to stop & help someone. It takes time out of my day, it takes money out of my bank account, etc. I’m just being honest, you guys. These are real thoughts that go through my head & as I write them down I’m embarrassed, because it’s so selfish.
We live in so much excess without even knowing it. I’m not saying it’s bad to have nice things! Obviously, I love my clothes, shoes, & accessories, but when those things become more important to me than helping a friend who’s going through a rough patch or giving the homeless man on the side of the road some money, that’s a problem! Yet, I continue to do it. Even though I’m not specifically thinking, “I’m not going to spot my friends that $20, because I want a new pair of shoes,” I’m doing it subconsciously.
As a christian, I am called to be inconvenienced in order to further Gods kingdom and nothing should stand in the way of that.
Can anybody relate?
