Top 7 Bible Verses About Helping Others In Need

Top 7 Bible Verses About Helping Others in Need

Every religion teaches us to live with harmony and peace. And, so does Christianity. This religion also emphasizes on helping others who are needy. To help someone needy is the greatest trait of mankind.
Bible is the sacred book of Christians and it is considered as the word of the God. There are very famous verses in Bible and all of them emphasize on helping others. Let us have look at top 7 Bible verses that convey this message:

 

1. Help widows and orphans  


(James 1:27 “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”)
This verse conveys the message that one should always be helpful and caring about widows and orphans. As per Bible, God is always there for the ones who have nobody to look after. Jesus love children and helped widows. As per Jesus to love was a verb that is what you do. You should help widows and children by your actions such as providing them food, clothing, etc.    People helping people


2. Make "sharing" a habit


(Hebrews 13:16 “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”)
As per this verse, sharing is the best habit. It is the habit that the God likes the most. In Bible, sharing your stuff with others is considered as a personal sacrifice in order to help others.


3. Always help your brother when required


(First John 3:17 “But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?”)
This verse says if someone is not helping his/her brothers and sisters, then God's love does not reside in him/her. The God's love compels people to help their brothers and sisters.     Help someone in need


4. Care about the interest of others


(Philippians 2:4 “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”)
This verse says that one should not be selfish and concerned about his/her own interests. People should also be concerned about the interests of others.


5. Helping others is like pleasing Christ


(Matthew 25:35-40 “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”)
If you are offering water to a thirsty person, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, meeting the sick or doing anything for the needy, you are doing it for Christ. If you are feeding the hungry that means you are feeding the Christ. So always be helpful to others.


6. Only blessings and no help is useless


(James 2:14-17 “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”)
If you see a hungry person and just pray for him that he gets food, then this is of no use. Instead you should make efforts to provide him food to eat and then pray for his well being.


7. Lord will repay for the good you have done


(Proverbs 19:17 “Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.”)
Whenever you do some good to others, Lord notices it and repays you for that.
