Others’ first 

“The LORD is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifices.”Proverbs 21:3 NLT.
The difference between the right and wrong is the final results from each of them. While doing the accurate things produced positive outcomes, the wrongdoings yield negative consequences. 

God is the proprietor of everything; our breaths, souls, bodies and whatever we possess on this earth. Hence, there is no quantity of offerings we give to Him as sacrifices that He does not already have. It is for this cause that the Almighty Jehovah is happy when we shift our attention from offering Him our gift, to giving this alms to our fellow beings. 

Contributing to others entails more than rendering physical gifts to others. Paying attention to the wellbeing of others is also doing the right thing. Sharing others’ pain as well as partaking in their sorrow or laughter. Praying for divine intervention for Christian brothers and sisters can deliver the miraculous results. 

Practicing what is right does not cost a dime. Instead, it is the perfect will of God for every genuine Christian, who sincerely loves Him.
