Caring for Our Community

Caring for Our Community

Why we should give back to the places that help shape us.
Single Session Bible Study

Overview

In his letter to the Galatian Christians, the apostle Paul wrote, "Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers" (6:10). This instruction has sometimes been reduced to the proverb "Charity begins at home." How do we balance our responsibilities toward the communities in which we live alongside our responsibility to nurture those within the community of faith? How do we help those in our neighborhood while also following our mandate to bring the gospel to the ends of the earth?
