  1. Alms Giving

  2. Luke 16: The rich man and Lazarus

  3. ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’Luke 16:24

  4. ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ Luke 16:27, 28

  5. What do we learn from this story? • The man saw Lazarus every single day and never gave him food or money. We should care about others before its too late. • Its important to listen to and act upon the word of God. • You could be rich on Earth but poor in heaven!

  6. 2 Corinthians 9:7 • So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

  7. The rich man could have given Lazarus many things..... • What could have Lazarus offered to the rich man? • What can we offer to others if we are not rich.

  8. What can I give? • Money • Time • Food • A helping hand • A service

  9. Important points What we have is from God, not from us. God gives us most of what we have and we are simply keeping some and giving some back. Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. Matthew 6:1

  10. And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had. Luke 21:1-4 • Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me. Matthew 25:45

  11. 2 Corinthians 9:7 • So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
