Give a large portion of your wealth to the poor (see also LK 19:1-10), and don't wait. Be ready to meet the Lord.
Give, and a good overflowing measure will be poured back to you.
The poor who give to God are honored.
Love, give and do good to, bless and pray for your enemies, those who hate you, curse you, and mistreat you. Be merciful to people and do not judge or condemn them; forgive them. Do to others as you would have them do to you. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High.
Openly showing others the evidence of God in your life will be rewarded with more life from God. As we sow the word of the gospel in receptive peoples hearts, God makes it grow.
Insensitivity (hard-heartedness) prevents people from really hearing and understanding God's message.
God will take away the life of anyone who is greedy for possessions and a life of leisure.
Those that like to impress others and be honored publicly, but take advantage of those in difficult circumstances, will be punished most severely.
