lots of frustration lately. how much do i continue to help with things. where do i draw the line, how do i draw it, what do i draw it with…
i’ve been cheated. that is a fact. yet i still feel somehow obliged to do a few things… like pay alot of money for air travel back to Sudan. is this because I am just really generous and forgiving? or because I feel guilty for being involved briefly with someone that had nothing while I had at least something and knowing still that that person has nothing or at least appears to have nothing. and in continuing to give i become a much better person than that person is?
when he said “turn the other cheek” did he mean only once or over and over again?

Remember, when it comes to giving, we are simply stewards of what God has given us. Our responsibility is two-fold: 1) We must be willing to give to those in need and 2) We must be wise stewards of that money or resources.
For an oversimplified example – giving money to a reputable charity vs. giving money directly to a man you just watched smoke a crack rock.
