Are we to do good only to other Christians and forget our neighbors?

  • Gal. 6 v.10: As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

Owing to the certainty of being divinely rewarded in verses 6 v.8-9, believers are urged to seize each opportunity to do good. Contextually, doing good refers to the ministry of restoration, 6 v.1, bearing one another’s burdens, 6 v.2, supporting teachers, 6 v.6, sowing to (living in accord with the leading of) the Spirit, 6 v.8, and general perseverance, 6 v.9. Believers are to minister first unto them who are of the household of faith (Christians), and second, to the rest of the world.

  • Prov. 3 v.27: Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.

The needy neighbor is to be helped.
