Episode 26: How should I use discernment in giving to the poor?

Episode Highlights:

  • While giving to the poor is a good, godly thing to do, Matthew 25:31-46 is often misused to support this activity.
  • We should always err on the side of generosity.  Psa 41:1-3
  • We should use discernment in we give to people.  Suggestions:
    • Pray for discernment
    • Resist giving money; give food or other resources instead
    • Make donations to parachurch organizations that specialize in this kind of ministry.
  • Our main concern should be giving the gospel.  Jesus fed the poor and preached the gospel (Matt 11:5).
