David lived a generous lifestyle. Araunah freely offered King David whatever he wanted so he could offer up burnt offerings.(an Old Testament practice).to God. David, being of a generous mind said:.2Samuel 24:24 "Nope! I will pay you for it. I do not want to offer to God anything that cost me nothing."

It is all a matter of whether one is sincere in wanting to follow Emmanuel's sayings.(*); that means, being in alignment with what the Creator is.

Look after the less fortunate as best you can and don't be out to fight and change things you may think need to be changed in the world, as they are all working out according to what God determines. What to do?.Romans 12:18 "If it be possible, as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all men."

It's easy to live peaceably if one is trusting in God for God's help, as these examples show:.Proverbs 21:1 "The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord. As the rivers of water, he turns it whithersoever he will."

The Creator will look after you within any system you may be living under.(Jeremiah 27:11,; 22:3,13; 24:5-7; 38:2; 39:17,18; 40:1-7; 2Samuel 14:14; Job 5:15; Isaiah 46:4; Psalms 4:3,4,8; 37:23-28; 72:12-14; 91:9-16; 118:8; 121:1-8; Psalms 125:1; Proverbs 29:25; 28:25; 3:5; Luke 12:23; 1Samuel 22:1-4; 2Samuel 22:48-51; Matthew 6:25-28), even in famine and protect you

Creator-God deeply cares for you and cares about about who and what you care about:.Philippians 4:6,7.

Creator-God is your sustainer. But, you have your part in it too:.Amos 5:13; Habakkuk 2:20; 1Peter 2:13; Hebrews 13:17.

Matthew 6:19-21,30-34 "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust does corrupt and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nor rust does corrupt and where thieves do not break through nor steal, for where your treasure is there will your heart be also...Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field which to day is and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you O you of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? For after all these things do the Gentiles.(physically {selfishly} minded people in Old Testament times; applies today to those of ordinary {low} consciousness).seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. But seek you first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." Luke 12:27-31 "Consider the lilies how they grow. They toil not, they spin not, and yet I say unto you that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is today in the field and tomorrow is cast into the oven, how much more will he clothe you O you of little faith? And seek not you what you shall eat or what you shall drink, neither be you of doubtful.(original means 'thinking that the Infinite One would provide is not true').mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after and your Father knows that you have need of these things. But rather seek you the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you." Psalms 40:4 "Blessed is that man that makes the Lord his trust and respects not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies."

Or, look after the things selfishly concerning the self, as explained herein and you're sacrificing an extremely high reward for yourself. Your choice!

One can try to have it all now' and 'get it all in order' for the self now, or use faith in trusting what Emmanuel said about caring for you while you care for others.(Hebrews 13:3).and by that, get a high reward that is everlasting.

When a man is broke, he can count his friends and his dates on his thumb! Be thankful for that! When you are down and out, something always turns up and it is usually the noses of your friends! Wealthy people are never bothered by the friends they had when they were poor because then they had no friends!

When goods increase so do friends, who may be there more for what you have than for what you are. And some want even these 'friends' around them as they do the goods they acquire: Ecclesiastes 5:11.

Some people take more pride in possessions than in character:.James 4:14. Such is selfishness

I have seen cliques in churches, to the exclusion of the poorer brethren and others in need, by a few who would rather stroke their equals than uplift those they obviously consider to be otherwise. Christ is not ashamed of any of us:.Hebrews 2:11; 11:16

Matthew 5:46-48 "For if you love them which love you, what reward have you? Do not even the publicans the same? And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more than others? Do not even the publicans so? Be.(know that you now are).you therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.".Being in a state of perfection has to do with going beyond loving just those who love you.

The why of giving is critical. Never give begrudgingly. It you cannot give, whatever..your money, your self..happily in faith, don't; as it will do nothing towards your reward:.1Corinthians 13:2.

Some spend more time and money on their "molten images", outward appearances and selfish concerns like "I just have to get myself right before I can have a relationship":.Jeremiah 2:11; 2Corinthians 10:7. Selfish concerns are used to absolve one of the needs of others:.Jeremiah 10:15; Matthew 23:11; Luke 22:27

Many concern themselves with the things one feels are important to be highly esteemed in the eyes of others who think similarly:.Matthew 23:4-6; Mark 12:38,39; Luke 16:15; John 5:44

Some may not be fully aware that this life is just a step to prepare for the next:.1Corinthians 15:19; John 20:29; Mark 8:36. Perhaps they are expecting to live eternally in the physical.

By looking to Emmanuel, letting in love and progressing in trust, we head toward the high calling of God:.Philippians 3:14;.Hebrews 13:21 "Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Emmanuel the Christ....."

Many spiritual persons agree wholeheartedly with this and do realize that the way to be pure in soul is to get their mind off of selfish concerns and seek to help others:.1Peter 1:22; Luke 8:15;.Hebrews 10:16 "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts and in their minds will I write them." 1John 5:2-5 "By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments and his commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world.(1John 2:16; Revelation 21:7).and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.(we see the value of the next life, and this helps us overcome the things we are so selfish about:.1Corinthians 15:54,55). Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Emmanuel is the Son of God?".That's why Christ came not to condemn, but rather too ensure that we make it!

How do we fulfil the law and what law?.Matthew 7:12.

And John 15:10-20. It is saying that if you love one another it may take a little sacrifice on your part. Loving and caring for others may be laborious, taking effort:.1Thessalonians 1:3.(talks of a work of faith).

The Creator will know you if you love Him:.1Corinthians 8:3; Zechariah 1:3. And its converse is true. God will answer you if you build your belief upon the ability to believe that He has given you in the first place.

The world.(friends, neighbors, etc.).may hate.(love less by comparison).and persecute.(original Greek can also mean 'to cause to to flee from them' they don't want any more to do with you; you're no longer one of them; they look down on you).you. They may think: "What are you, nuts?.1Peter 4:4. What with selling your big expensive house and car", so that you are better able to help another?.John 14:21,24; 13:34.
