AM I MY BROTHER’S KEEPER?

Genesis 4:9 (NIV)
Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” “I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?”

This was Cain’s infamous reply when the Lord asked him about his brother, Abel. Come to think of it, do we really have to care about ‘our brother’ ~ family, friends, neighbours or even strangers? Do we have to think about them when we have troubles of our own? Do we really have to care about ~ what they eat, where they sleep, how they get by and etc.?

In today’s self-centred world, a lot might say ‘givers’ give away their happiness and fool themselves by giving away their hard earned bucks. Money that could be spent on their own pleasure and gratification. Money that could be saved for future investments for ones’ success and security.

However, every generous heart will definitely agree that giving gives them happiness. In fact, more than that, it gives them joy. Yes, we all have our own worries~ obligations, dues and debts to pay for. However, those who know the truth and believe God as their Faithful Father and the Great Shepherd will, without a doubt, still open their hands and help those in need. Trusting, that the Lord will provide for them and they shall lack nothing.
