  • He who has compassion on the poor lends to God and He will repay him for his good deed. (Proverbs 19:17) All of us are beggars before the Lord for we do not have anything that we have not received from God. Therefore give to the poor as God has given to us.
  • And what is the word of Christ without an example?
