Bible verses about "sharing" | ISV

1 Kings 17:8-16

8 Then this message came to him from the LORD: 9 "Get up, move to Zarephath in Sidon, and stay there. Look! I've commanded a widow to sustain you there." 10 So he got up and went to Zarephath. As he arrived at the entrance to the city, a widow was there gathering sticks. So he asked her, "Please, may I have some water in a cup so I can have a drink." 11 While she was on her way to get the water, he called out to her, "Would you please also bring me a piece of bread while you're at it?" 12 "As the LORD your God lives," she replied, "I don't have so much as a muffin, just a handful of flour in a bowl and some oil left in a bottle. Now I'm going to find some sticks so I can cook a last meal for my son and for me. Then we're going to eat it and die." 13 But Elijah said to her, "You can stop being afraid. Go and do what you said, but first make me a muffin and bring it to me. Then make a meal for yourself and for your son, 14 because this is what the LORD God of Israel says: 'That jar of floor will not run out, nor will that bottle of oil become empty until the very day that the LORD sends rain on the surface of the ground." 15 So she went out and did precisely what Elijah told her to do. As a result, Elijah, the widow, and her son were fed for days. 16 The jar of floor never ran out and the bottle of oil never became empty, just as the LORD had promised through Elijah.

Matthew 25:31-46

31 "When the Son of Man comes in his glory and all the angels are with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be assembled in front of him, and he will cull them out, one from another, like a shepherd separates sheep from goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right but the goats on his left. 34 "Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who have been blessed by my Father! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world, 35 because I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you welcomed me. 36 I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you took care of me. I was in prison, and you visited me.' 37 "Then the righteous will say to him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and give you something to eat, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you as a stranger and welcome you, or see you naked and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?' 40 The king will answer them, 'I tell you with certainty, since you did it for one of the least important of these brothers of mine, you did it for me.' 41 "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Get away from me, you who are accursed, into the eternal fire that has been prepared for the devil and his angels! 42 Here's why: I was hungry, and you gave me nothing to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me nothing to drink. 43 I was a stranger, and you didn't welcome me. I was naked, and you didn't clothe me. I was sick and in prison, and you didn't visit me.' 44 "Then they will reply, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or as a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and didn't help you?' 45 Then he will say to them, 'I tell you with certainty, since you didn't do it for one of the least important of these, you didn't do it for me.' 46 These people will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life."

13 Supply the needs of the saints. Extend hospitality to strangers.

James 2:14-17

14 What good does it do, my brothers, if someone claims to have faith but does not prove it with actions? This kind of faith cannot save him, can it? 15 Suppose a brother or sister does not have any clothes or daily food 16 and one of you tells them, "Go in peace! Stay warm and eat heartily." If you do not provide for their bodily needs, what good does it do? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it does not prove itself with actions, is dead.

Luke 6:29-30

29 If someone strikes you on the cheek, offer him the other one as well, and if someone takes your coat, don't keep back your shirt, either. 30 Keep on giving to everyone who asks you for something, and if anyone takes what is yours, do not insist on getting it back.
