“Give to everyone who begs from you, and do not refuse anyone who wants to borrow from you.” Matthew 5:42, Luke 6:30
The metamorphosis we go through to become Christ-like, to hit the Mark with our behavior and our thoughts, is replete with light-filled phases. This command to be exceedingly generous presupposes such a light-filled phase that reveals awareness of the limitless wealth of God and by relation, you His true child.
He said in John 15:7, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you (read: memorize these commands,) ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” Also, the begging angle is, “Ask and keep on asking and it shall be given you…” and “Now ask and keep on asking and you will receive so that your joy may be complete.” Luke 11:9 and John 16:24.
If someone prays to you for something, give it or lend it. You are a child of God and you have a responsibility to answer prayers as He does. If you don’t think you can afford it, then walk over to the light and look around.
