I cannot remember just how many times I've heard this question asked. Are we responsible for our brothers and sisters in CHRIST? Just thinking about it off the cuff this afternoon, I have come to the conclusion that yes, to at least some extent I am responsible for my brothers and sisters, at least to the best of my ability their welfare. No, I am not rich, but if there is a brother or sister that I know of, I am not above fixing them a meal and taking it to them. I am also responsible for setting a good example religiously and morally for everyone I come into contact with. When and where I can I am to help those in need and also I am to encourage them to do whatever it is to put their lives in the LORD'S Hands.
However, I do not believe I am responsible for anyone other than myself (my children are adults now) when it concerns the law or payment of bills.
What is your opinion? The most important answer I have come up with is it is MOST IMPORTANT to love our brothers and sisters with all that is within us.
