The second aspect of our responsibility towards one another in the family of the church is that of practical service and caring. Love can only be verified in the nitty-gritty process of getting stuck in to the job of meeting each others needs on whatever level they arise. Various ways in which this can be done are suggested, and with particular emphasis on the part that financial giving ought to play. (See as well ‘Is Tithing Scriptural?’ GT 36-37). Only through mutual servant hood can we take our place in the church and truly prove to each other our commitment and love. The Lord wants above all for His people to really look after one another, and for each church to be an environment in which all are fully and properly cared for in the most practical and comprehensive of ways. However spiritual or charismatic a church might otherwise be, without this it’s all just so much hot air and the merest puff of wind.
