"Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise."
This is great stuff. Seriously... I love it when the rules are so interesting. :) "Give to every man that asketh of thee" (and I am sure that he means women as well.) So, if someone asks me for something, then I give it. Am I okay with that? Hmm. It makes you think about how attached you are to your earthly possessions, and how much you trust God. :) This whole thing is about faith... if someone takes your stuff, you shouldn't ask for it back. What?? :) How much do we trust God? And then, we should treat people as we would like to be treated. this is a huge thing... do we really do this, ever? Do we treat our Boss as we would like to be treated? Our families? Our co-workers? The people who are mean to us? The people who take our stuff? :) Do we have the faith to really try to live this way in our lives? I think it is awfully cool. It adds some challenge to walking down the street. :) If someone comes up to you and asks you for change... then you give change. if she asks you for $34,972, then you have to give $34,972. Good thing most people only ask for change, eh? :) I know, I am being silly... but the idea is serious. It is a great way to treat life, and it is so relaxing to not be attached to your stuff. :) If someone wants it, you can let it go. The Lord might have a more important use for it somewhere else. :) Can we do it? Today, let's try giving to anyone who asks us. What a great day it will be. :)
