Handling Overly Needy People sermon video. (2,751 YouTube views). Overly needy people will literally suck the life and resources out of you. They drain you emotionally and fill you with guilt if you allow them. If you do not set boundaries, you will be contributing over and over and again and again to their addictions. Christians should be incredibly generous. Here at Life Gate, we do a good job giving help to needy people. We have our alms account specifically set up to help, but I must admit that often we give to the “OVERLY NEEDY” and not those in need. What I mean by OVERLY NEEDY PEOPLE is people we attempt to help, but who do not help themselves. They are the habitually needy. They consistently find themselves in constant need and if you allow them, they will suck your life and your resources out of you.

Scriptures: 2 Peter 2:19, 1 Corinthians 6:12, Romans 6:12-14, James 5:16, 1 John 1:9, 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, 1 Corinthians 9:27

Let’s make it very clear that if you are a Christian you will, not should, have a heart for the needy. Compassion will come up within each of us to help when we encounter a person in need. If that is not your case then check to see if Christ is in you. In fact, we need to see our resources as God’s resources. Sadly, many want to have access to God’s resources when they are needy, but stingy when it comes to him accessing theirs. That is not how it should be in church.
