If they are our family, shouldn't we share with them?

The M Blog: Carefully pouring oil on the process

Another good post from Guy Muse. When you see how little our brothers and sisters around the world have and compare it to our luxurious lifestyle, we should recognize something is wrong. I especially liked what Guy said of one-time gifts to meet a need.....

Being one-time gifts they do not create dependency; rather they have been the cause of much thanksgiving to the Father.
That is excellent. A gift is a gift and doesn't lead to dependency. I don't think anyone is suggesting an income redistribution system but I think Guy is right that there are many ways the church in the West can be a financial blessing to the family of God around the world.
