Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. (James 2:15-17 NIV).
It is not good enough for Christians to simply pray for one another. We must always be willing to make physical sacrifices for each other as well.
