Proverbs 3:27 27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due , When it is in your power to do it. . Doing good to all men. OMISSION. James 4:17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin. . Galatians 6:10 (New King James Version)
This verse begins with the word THEREFORE. That means it speaks to an important application of the previous verses(7-9) which says:
MATTHEW 25 “Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.”
The religious people of the day (Priest and Levite)used excuses to keep from helping the man.
