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.
