Apples of Gold - May 5 |

Hunt, Dave

Many individuals, whether religious or not, are capable of meritorious works. As Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 13, “…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 profits me nothing.” In other words, if we do many acts of kindness and yet do not share the true gospel with individuals, we have not helped them in the area where the most help is needed.

"But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away."
