2. Jesus does call us to care for others
It is important for us to understand that Jesus does not say "if you give." He says "WHEN you give." It is expected of us to care for the needs of others.
NATAN - Hebrew for giving. It has the assumption that the giving creates a relationship with the receiver.
It is the Lord's design that we care for others. He tells us in Deuteronomy 15:11 that there will always be those in need.
When we give to others we are giving up part of our lives for them, sacrificially and willingly. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
Jesus commands that we are not to blow the trumpets or "toot our own horn." Give humbly.
When we use others to build ourselves up, it has no divine quality whatsoever.
