Give to everyone who asks you

Most of us Christians wonder whether we should give money to beggars. The Lord Jesus provides a very clear answer.



In the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord Jesus says:

Matthew 5:42Give to him who asks you, and don’t turn away him who desires to borrow from you.

Do you give to beggars? The Old Testament people do. They are marked by their generosity to the poor.

When we are generous to the poor, we are obeying a command of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Do you want to grow as a disciple? Allow yourself to give money to beggars!
