Doing Something About It

" If you know someone who doesn’t have any clothes or food,  you shouldn’t just say, 'I hope all goes well for you. I hope you will be warm and have plenty to eat.' What good is it to say this, unless you do something to help?"
James 2: 15-16 (CEV)
There's a great deal of kindness and charity in our world which is expressed by good wishes; perhaps even good intentions. After all, not all of us have the means of doing something to help the poor and the needy, so we give a kind word. Or sympathy.
However, how does that change if we do have the means?

Or do we simply choose not to help?

James 2:26 (CEV)
"Anyone who doesn’t breathe is dead, and faith that doesn’t do anything is just as dead!"
