We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
35 for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you took me in,
36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.
37 Then the righteous will answer him, Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?
38 When did we see you a stranger and take you in, or naked and clothe you?
39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?
40 And the King will answer them, Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.
Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: It is more blessed to give than to receive.«
36 When he had said this, he knelt down and prayed with them all.
37 And they all wept and embraced Paul and kissed him,
38 grieving most of all over the word which he had spoken, that they would not see his face again. And they accompanied him to the ship.
Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.«
14 What good is it, my brethren, if a man says he has faith but has no works? Can such faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food,
16 and one of you says to them, »Go in peace, be warmed and filled,« and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?
17 So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.
Contribute to the needs of the saints, practice hospitality.
He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but rather must labor, doing useful work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with those in need.
And the multitudes asked him, »What then shall we do?«
And he answered them, »He who has two tunics, let him share with him who has none; and he who has food, let him do likewise.«
But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?
Sell your possessions, and give alms; provide yourselves purses that do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
