Luke 3:7–18 “[John] answered, ‘whoever has two shirts must share with the one who has none, and whoever has food must do likewise’” (Luke 3:11).
In Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge initially refuses to give money to help the “poor and needy.” However, after his experience with the spirits, during which he discovers what the birth and presence of Jesus Christ are all about, he changes his mind and offers a major contribution. This is not merely a nice thing to do at Christmastime but is something we are called to do year round. It involves not just giving clothing, food, and other items to those who need them, but speaking out for justice and fairness for all God’s children as well.How can you do that?
