Scripture… As We Live It #143

This is the 143rd passage in “Scripture… As We Live It.”

When you can be certain that you are not being taken advantage of and when you can be certain that the person will use your service only for good, Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God but don’t think of this as worship; it’s just doing good things. (Hebrews 13:16 re-mix)

    It’s sad how many times I’ve been chastised for going against this mindset. It sucks, plain and simple.

    While the Scripture doesn’t say “don’t get taken advantage of”, I think this is just good common sense. I’ve been taken advantage of, and had to stop giving. Jesus didn’t allow Himself to get taken advantage of either.

    God bless, Richie

    Richard: Not to be abrasive, but what are your thoughts on Jesus and the 10 lepers? 9/10 of those guys may not have went and gotten drunk or anything like that but it looks to me like they still took advantage of Jesus. At the very least I think it fits to say that Jesus did something good for them and they didn’t respond in kind.
