Not Spirit Alone………


If you have the Spirit without the Word, you blow up.
If you have the Word without the Spirit, you dry up. If you have both the Word and the Spirit, you grow up.
Every day of your life, keep the Lord our God in mind. Never sin deliberately or disobey any of his commands. Always do what is right and never get involved in anything evil. Be honest, and you will succeed in whatever you do. Give generously to anyone who faithfully obeys God. If you are stingy in giving to the poor, God will be stingy in giving to you. Give according to what you have. The more you have, the more you should give. Even if you have only a little, be sure to give something. This is as good as money saved. You will have your reward in a time of trouble. Taking care of the poor is the kind of offering that pleases God in heaven. Do this, and you will be kept safe from the dark world of the dead. 

Give food to the hungry and clothes to  people in need. If you are prosperous, give generously, and do it gladly. Take the advice of sensible people and never treat any useful advice lightly.  
 
Take advantage of every opportunity to praise the Lord your God. Ask him to make you prosper in whatever you set out to do. He does not give his wisdom to the people of any other nation. He is the source of all good things, but he can also destroy you and bring you to certain death, if he wishes. 
 
Remember all my instructions. Don’t forget them for one minute.
 
–The Bible, Tobit 4:5-11, 16-19).
