It is in the nature of all of us to be selfish and want to put our own needs and desires before others. The Bible gives clear direction however on our need to give glory to God by helping others in need. God commands us to love others and also tells us we will be more blessed by doing this. Are you helping others in your life? Is God calling you to help out a co-worker, a family member or a child? I pray that you read through these Bible Verses on helping others slowly and ask God to work them into your life and hearts. Feel free to use these scriptures for a Bible Study, for memorization, or for a Sunday School lesson. Please add any other Bible Verses about helping others to the comments so this may be a greater resource for those that find it.
