The blind beggar in Luke 18: 35 depended on Jesus for help. There were no government agencies to provide for the poor and needy.
Who do we depend on? Is it right to expect the government to provide for our needs? In this difficult economy, what will we – the church – do if social services are cut from the federal budget?
Give to the Church so that we can provide for our brothers and sisters who are hungry, who are underclothed, and in need of shelter. And remember – It’s Not Your Money.
