One of the advantages of living on an island where there is a mixture of rich and poor is that after a major disaster, we are suddenly on the same level even if it is only temporary.
The more affluent folks usually recover faster than the working class population. Consequently, they are able use their influence to help the less fortunate.
Why does it have to take a disaster for us to do good?
Could it be that God allows natural disasters to occur to bring awareness to the plight of our neighbors?
‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’ (Luke 10:27)
Who is our neighbor?
Someone asked Jesus this question and He told them the parable of the good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37).
The Samaritan symbolized the oil and wine and this is how God wants us to treat each other all the time.
But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. (Luke 10:33-34)
We are living in serious times and we need to know the provision that God has made for us and how we can be prepared for the return of the Lord.

Beverley has been serving the Lord since she was a child. At an early age, she recognized that God had a special plan for her life, but it was not until in her adulthood that she surrendered her total life to God and accepted the mandate that God placed on her life. The Lord called her into His Kingdom to be an encourager, intercessor, teacher, scribe, priest, and to proclaim the Word of God.
Since then, Beverly has established a blog to teach us to become the oil and wine. The oil and wine are purified and mature products, which is the advanced level that the Lord expected of us.
In 2017, Beverley published her first book, Harm Not The Oil And Wine. In it, she described her trials and how God helped her to overcome them, and to live more victoriously. The book also exposed the enemy of our souls with detailed information about his past defeats and future extinction.
Wright spents most of her time studying the Bible to know the truth of God’s Word. She believes that only God’s truth can expose the deception of the enemy, and uproot and tear down spiritual strongholds.

You can also find her on Facebook and Google+ under the name of her blog, and on Twitter as @Theoilandwine.

Your neighbor is anyone who is in need who crosses your path. It doesn’t matter who they are. We need to care about the person and leave their sins to God.
