What did Jesus say about Helping Others

What Jesus said about helping Each Other

Here’s what Jesus said about helping the poor, along with relevant Bible verses and three main takeaways with their titles bolded:

Jesus frequently taught about the importance of caring for the poor and needy. Here are some relevant verses:

“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40)

“Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.” (Luke 12:33)

“Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. He said, ‘Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them.'” (Luke 21:1-3)

Three Main Takeaways:

  1. Identifying with the Poor: Jesus taught that how we treat the poor and needy is how we treat Him, emphasizing the need to care for them as if caring for Christ Himself.
  2. Eternal Investment: Jesus encouraged His followers to be generous towards the poor, viewing it as an investment in heavenly treasures that will never fade.
  3. Attitude over Amount: Jesus praised the poor widow who gave two small copper coins, teaching that God values the sacrifice and heart behind the gift more than the amount given.

In summary, Jesus placed a high priority on caring for the poor and needy, calling His followers to be generous, compassionate, and selfless in meeting their needs, as if ministering directly to Him.
