do we have the right to expect others to help us?

If God calls on us to share our riches, are the poor justified in expecting handouts?

  • No one should expect a handout but if one is given then so be it. Hopefully they say thanks and work on getting to where they can help someone else out.

  • I heard Evangelist Kenneth Copeland say one time that you can't Out Give God. He said that the more you give away the more God will bless you and return it to you (casting bread upon the water). There is free will to do as you choose but with this spiritual concept of can't out give God, it seems like all would be well if you shared what you have.

  • You give because you want to not because you expect something in return... thats where the WOF teachers blew it.
    Jesus gave His live because of LOVE not because He expected anything in return. Grace is giving something that you do not deserve.

  • Expect? No. We have the right to ask for help and the right to recieve it. But should we just expect it? No.
