|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
17 If you see some brother or sister in need and have the means to do something about it but turn a cold shoulder and do nothing, what happens to God's love? It disappears. And you made it disappear.
17 If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?
