To have empathy. To act with compassion. To show that you have a conscience. Are all of Gods requirements. Many of us fail miserably. God knew that we would fail. He must have contemplated his next move deeply. To give up something so special and so near to you're heart is in itself a task. We must think the same way. What can we give up? What are we willing to sacrificed? Am I thinking of myself before others?
Deuteronomy 15:7, 11
If there is a poor man among your brothers in any of the towns of the land that the LORD your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward your poor brother. There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.
