Physical Needs

This is a subsidiary post of Need.

Physical needs include food and clothing.  These needs can be contrasted with spiritual needs.

Matthew 6:32  –  “your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things”

Acts 4:34  –  “there was not a needy person among them”
Acts 4:35  –  “they would be distributed to each as any had need.”

Ephesians 4:28  –  “so that he will have something to share with one who has need.”

Philippians 4:10-19

1 Timothy 6:8-10  –  There is no good reason for our physical needs to be great.  We should avoid greed and the love of money, being content with what we have – even if that’s only “food and covering.”

James 2:15, 16  –  “If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,’ and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?”

1 John 3:17  –  “But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?”
