Do you give Alms?

“…So then, as occasion and opportunity open up to us, let us do good [morally] to all people [not only being useful or profitable to them, but also doing what is for their spiritual good and advantage]. Be mindful to be a blessing, especially to those of the household of faith [those who belong to God’s family with you, the believers]…” © Gal 6:10 AMP italics, emphasis and words in bracket mine

In most mosques, on Friday afternoons, you will find beggers flocking outside waiting for the `saints` to give them alms as they come from worship. For muslims, giving alms to the poor is part of their worship. Remember Apostle Peter, silver and gold have I none”? (Acts 3:1-8) it was customary in the OT/ NT days for poor people to wait outside synagogue for help...why don’t we see them these days outside our churches???

The early church knew that the Gospel has to cater for the body, soul and spirit; missionaries from Europe built churches, schools, orphanages and hospitals. It may be difficult to get a pagan/muslim to church but they will bring their child to school/hospital; in Tanzania we have loads of muslim in high places who went to Christian schools... let us go back to the Full Gospel, catering for BODY, SOUL and SPIRIT.
