A popular Christian hymn adapted from a poem written in the mid-1800s has some excellent descriptions of what God has done and does do for us, but it uses a repeated phrase that can be misconstrued and misapplied. Fortunately, a particular stanza in the poem and hymn, if not edited out of the hymn, sheds light on how we respond to God.

"Giving to the Poor" looks at the importance of secret giving. It also explores some possible exceptions to this command of Jesus; how helping the poor and needy can inspire others to give, and how it can be done more effectively when we work together in Christian community. Some people spend their time bragging about giving to the poor. However, if we boast and brag about helping the poor, there are consequences. What are these consequences? What does Jesus say about rewards? And how do we make sure we don't lose our spiritual treasures in heaven?

Mes récentes recherches m'ont amené à la bourse de Montréal, une endroit privilégié pour V.I.P. seulement. Donc nous, le 99% par notre obéissance et soumission contribuons au style de vie du 1%, donc des ultra riches de ce monde. Il serait grand temps de changer ce paradigme.

Could be reminding us to build up for ourselves treasures in heaven, and/or the rapture is near. (the first fruits rapture and hiding of the rest of the church in the wilderness) (near as in whenever God decides it to be)
