"But whoever has the world's goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?" 1 John 3:17 (NASB)

Take note that today’s scripture says “the world’s goods,” speaking specifically to the goods we need to function and survive in this world. The Word of God gives us practical advice for living in this world, knowing we have practical everyday needs. We are God’s agents, equipped with an open heart to use our hands to help our fellow man when they are unable to access the goods of this world. When we can recognize the needs and concerns of others, it is a sure sign that we carry the love of God in our hearts. Around us there are many in need; and even though we cannot possibly attend to the needs of everyone, it is a blessing to be able to attend to the needs of our brothers and sisters in our path. It is one of the surest signs of God’s love!
