After looking at key passages from the New Testament, this article shows that good works should not be limited to works of charity. Good works include works done in the marketplace and home.
Giving should not be driven only by our neighbour coming to ask for help. It can also be driven by you going to seek your needy neighbour, to model God in his mercy, to be the salt and light in this world. The author encourages Christians to practice the ministry of word and deed, and maps out the challenges and practical ways of getting started.
