My Advice – Our commission is clear, we are to go into the world a preach the Gospel. This is our “prime directive.” But all to often, people will not care who we know, until they know how we care. Not just about their all important eternal destiny, but about their temporal concerns as well. Jesus is being very clear in His instructions here. Instructions that He takes very personally. What we do or do not do for others, we do or do not do for Him. How credible can our concern for a person’s eternal well-being be, if we have no concerns for their current well-being?
My Advice – We must not be so “heavenly” minded that we are of no earthly good. The “law of Christ” is to love our neighbors and we love ourselves, and to do unto others as we would have them do unto us.
