There are many people today who are involved in various forms of outreach for a variety of reasons.
Outreach may include providing food for the hungry, assistance to battered families, housing for the homeless, assistance to wayward youth, or promotion of benevolent causes.
Outreach is essential to kingdom building. We must reach out and touch the wounded and the lost of the world in the name of Jesus. Our outreach must come from the heart. It must be pure in its intent, not a mere photo opportunity designed to promote other goals and causes.
When we help others it must come from the heart. It must be done out of love. That’s what 1 Corinthians 13:3 means when it says, “And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned and have not love it profiteth me nothing.”
