Charity

And if I donate all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body in order to boast but do not have love, I gain nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:3 HCSB

If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.” Luke 6:32 HCSB

th-823

“I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must also love one another. John 13:34 HCSB

These are hard lessons to flesh and blood. But if we are thoroughly grounded in the faith of Christ’s love, this will make His commands easy to us. Every one that comes to Him for washing in His blood, and knows the greatness of the mercy and the love there is in Him, can say, in truth and sincerity, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? Let us then aim to be merciful, even according to the mercy of our heavenly Father to us. -Matthew Henry
