1 Timothy 4:12 (Pt. 4)  Thought/Prayer:  Examples in Charity.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”  KJV http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

How are we Christians to be an example of other believers in charity?  We may immediately think of giving tangible things to others, such as donations of money to good causes or helping out a friend with a little extra cash to get him across a tough patch.  Often, those who receive tangible things from us may not even know we are Christians; but that should not detract from our giving.  At some point it may be made known to them that we follow Jesus Christ.

It doesn’t really matter, does it, if someone knows we are Christians at the precise moment of a charitable act?  This is not to downplay our Christian giving; but giving is giving, no matter the knowledge base of the recipient.  We are to give, just give.  There is no application form for someone to fill out as to whether they know we are Christians.  That would, you might agree, be ridiculous.  It is the icing on the cupcake, however, if the receivers of our gifts do know that we are Christians. 

I was a volunteer at a distribution center for the giving out of Christmas toys.  This facility is known to be run by a Christian church.  It was heartwarming to say, “These gifts of toys are given in the name of Jesus Christ.”  Yes, it was inwardly warming.  It was also heartfelt knowing that all of the volunteers there were Christians, thus increasing the warmth of Christian fellowship through service.

However it is that we show charity, and to whoever it is, we are examples of how believers are to be.  It is a form of building up our brothers and sisters in Christ, proving the faith through examples for each other.  When we serve families going through the throes of emotionally painful pregnancies, we are modeling for our brethren the charity of our Lord.  Most of these families will probably realize that we represent Christ because so many pregnancy crisis efforts are Christian-based.  And even if they don’t, we are still showing those we serve what it means to be an example of charity.  Lord, help us to be faithful.

Topics:  Pray for our charity to be seen as coming from a Christian base.
