  2. THAT’S A RELIEF

  3. THE RELIEF OF PEOPLE WHO ARE IN CONDITIONS OF NEED,

    HARDSHIP & DISTRESS
  4. “I tell you the truth,” Jesus said, “this poor widow

    has given more than all the rest of them. For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has.” Luke 21:3–4 (NLT)
  5. Since you excel in so many ways—in your faith, your

    gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love from us—I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving. 2 Corinthians 8:7 (NLT)
  6. Use your hands for good hard work, and then give

    generously to others in need. Ephesians 4:28 (NLT)
  7. Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will

    get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.” 2 Corinthians 9:6–12 (NLT)
  8. For God is the one who provides seed for the

    farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you. Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God. So two good things will result from this ministry of giving— the needs of the believers in Jerusalem will be met, and they will joyfully express their thanks to God. 2 Corinthians 9:6–12 (NLT)
  9. WHAT WAS HAPPENING? Their only suggestion was that we keep

    on helping the poor, which I have always been eager to do. Galatians 2:10 (NLT)
  10. WHAT IS HAPPENING? Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we

    should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith. Galatians 6:10 (NLT)
