LOVE in action.  1 John 3:17,18.
"But if any one has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's LOVE abide in him?  Little children, let us not love in word or speech but in deed and in truth".  1 John 3:17,18. R.S.V.

As we read and study the Bible, and especially in the New Testament, we learn that we are to share what we have with the poor or less fortunate.  It doesn't seen to be only the wealthy but all of the Body of Christ.  If we have more than we need we are to share with those who are in need.

In the United States of America we sometimes feel that because we pay taxes and have a welfare system that this has relieved us of any farther obligation to help those in need.  After reading 1 John 3:17,18 how do you think God would answer this?
