"If anyone gives you a cup of water because you belong to Christ, they will not go without their reward." Mark 9 : 41

Here Jesus repeats his often quoted saying on the reward given whenever we give anything for charity’s sake.  He then contrasts it with the punishment due to those who forego charity and use their senses to propagate evil.  Although the language is extreme,  Jesus is giving clear warnings to those who mislead children and other vulnerable people.


Lord we ask your help to recognise those who need our help and who are needy and vulnerable. Help us to respect all and never to take advantage of others ‘ weaknesses. Amen
