Have you ever heard someone say, of people who go to soup kitchens, or receive welfare benefits, or whatever, that “they are just taking advantage of” hard-working taxpayers, or of the church, or whatever?
I read a post today that stated:
What if the man were lying? What if he had plenty of money? What if he didn’t really need the gas?So what? These ladies were loving this man in the name of Jesus Christ with everything they had. No one can take advantage of that.
I agree! No one can take advantage of us when we are loving them in the name of Jesus.
Read the rest of the story, “They can’t take advantage of us” by Alan Knox on his Practical Christianity column. While you’re at it, take a look at his blog where he discusses a lot more about these kinds of issues.
