Lazarus … would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps that fell from the … table. (Luke 16:20, 21)
Sunday Theme: A constant theme in Scripture-Love God, love your nieghbour as yourself. it is trinity of relationships, for us to totally love God we show it by loving our neighbour, and if we can not show love to our neighbour it is because there is something lacking in us.
No matter how much the rich man has he does not have compassion for Lazarus, and if he does not compassion for Lazarus how much compassion is he likely to show to those he claims to love; or even to himself?
How much love could the rich man have for God if he ignores Lazarus at his door?
