True Acts of Mercy

Is not this, instead, the kind of fast that I have chosen? Release the constraints of impiety; relieve the burdens that oppress; freely forgive those who are broken; and break apart every burden. Break your bread with the hungry, and lead the destitute and the homeless into your house. When you see someone naked, cover him, and do not despise your own flesh. Then your light will break forth like the morning, and your health will improve quickly, and your justice will go before your face, and the glory of the Lord will gather you up.Isaiah 58:6-8

Freedom through Spiritual Revolution

The point is this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that you may always have enough of everything and may provide in abundance for every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:6-8

Lent: Preparation for Easter

Produce fruit in keeping with repentance....The man who has two tunics should share with him who has none, and the one who has food should do the same....Don collect any more than you are required to.... Don extort money and don accuse people falsely -- be content with your pay.
Luke 3:8-14
