His appeal carries the challenge that we should care for others as we care for ourselves. This care expresses itself through hospitality – warm, generous, tangible hospitality – opening our home to others as though we opened our home to our family members. Our fellow church members and other Christians are our brothers and sisters in Christ. We are to care for those imprisoned. We may not know prisoners who need care as they did in 1st century Rome, but the obligation is caring for others’ needs as we care for ourselves. We are reminded to do all we can to honor marriage and to uphold it. Our age is marked by sexual immorality and pornography. We must fight back and honor marriage by honoring our brothers and sisters, not seeing them through eyes of selfishness. The love of money must not hold influence over us. This common temptation can be killed by generosity and see the needs of others and offering tangible help. God offers the great promise – “I will never leave or forsake you.” We can be generous and embrace the ministry of reconciliation.
