Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
This command seems the most difficult of them all. Our obsession with material good and possessions makes us recoil at the thought of giving away what we have acquired. Jesus’ statement presupposes that the person who asks for help has a genuine need. Since it is impossible to know whether the need is legitimate in all cases, we are to allow the Holy Spirit to lead us.
