Response to OK, Thank you Tim

 

But anyway ... that ISN'T what I had in mind when talking about charity ... because this is a lopsided situation too ... where one person is "below" the other person, needing help ... and the other person is (supposedly) the (superior) help giver.

I don't believe real charity works like that. I believe charity is a mutual thing ... on a level playing field ... where BOTH parties are helping each other mutually.
--------------------------------------------------------------

I think we agree, when charity is fulfilled correctly both parties are satisfied. Both the giver and the receiver. And we all give and receive.

According to the Bible Charity is second only to Prophecy. "but rather that ye may prophesy."

1 Corinthians 13:13
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

To Prophesy is regarded higher then Hope and Faith and Charity.

Why do you suppose that is?

Tim
