I love Peanuts. Not the actual peanuts, but the comic strip. My favorite is Garfield, but Peanuts is a close second.
How often do you see something like this? Someone is in need physically, and all we do is give words? I feel bad for Snoopy. Charlie and Linus did nothing to help him. He isn't any warmer. He is still in the same place doing the same thing.
I think we often see someone in need and don't know how to help. God doesn't ask us to go beyond what we're capable of. People came up to John the Baptist and asked him what they should do.
And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”
-Luke 3:11 ESV
He's saying give what you can, do what you can, and show them with your actions that you care. Saying it doesn't help. Doing it does.
