Quote of the Month

Contribute to the needs of the saints
and seek to show hospitality.

In Galatians 6:10 Paul instructed the members of the church to “do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” In Romans 12 he added specificity to that rather general instruction: “Share with God’s people who are in need” (v. 13). The level of poverty and the need for help were relatively high in the early church. It was critical for believers who had enough and more to share their abundance with those who were in need. And finally, Paul indicated the moral responsibility of showing hospitality. In a day when inns were scarce and not always desirable, it was critical for believers to extend hospitality to Christians (and others) who were traveling.
