God doesn’t need our good works, but our neighbor does.
What good works does your neighbor need?
Mark 16:15 (ESV) And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.
James 1:27 (ESV) Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
