Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 30 September – 6 October 2018
“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”
– Hebrews 13:16
Inflation rate in the Philippines has been hitting record high for this year. Because of the high prices of goods, many people are doing their best to budget their money.
In this difficult times, it is good to see that there are still people who manage to give money to others especially to those their do not know. Another thing is, most of these givers are actually middle class people and those in the lower segments of the population. There are also some wealthy people who are generous to give to those who need.
Jesus Christ tells us that we should be givers. Whether we give money, time, effort or other else, we are told to share what we have to those who need. Sharing is the manifestation of God’s love to everybody. It is through sharing that God’s love is shown as we are all part of the community of believers that glorify Him.
Today, even we have problems on our own, let us not forget others who may need our help. We may not know but it is through sharing that God is felt especially when it spreads. In the future, we might be also the recipient of this circle of giving.
Sharing manifests God’s love for us.
