They don’t pass it on

30 April 2018

God doesn’t need anything. He rejoices, however, when He sees someone finding peace with His image and honouring it with love. If someone comes to you to ask for something of yours, don’t say in your heart that you’ll keep it for yourself, for your own sake, and that God will find another way to supply their need. Because that’s what’s said by the unrighteous, who don’t know God. Just and virtuous people are sensible of the honour paid to them by their impoverished brother or sister and don’t transfer it to someone else. They don’t allow themselves to miss the opportunity to be generous.
