Am I My Brother’s Keeper? …Yes!!!

Brothers Humans are social beings by nature. We need each other to survive. No matter how highly we think of ourselves we can’t get through life’s journey alone. To honor those who have helped you along the way…help others.

For my Christian brothers and sisters, if you see someone hungry…feed them; if you see they are lacking clothing…clothe them. A person will be more open to hearing your “witness” if their basic needs are satisfied.

For everyone, remember to treat others as you would want to be treated. As we look at the world’s shaky economy, it should be noted that our circumstances could change when we least expect it.

As I walk the streets in our nation’s capital, I see many of our fellow citizens panhandling for a meal. It would be  so easy to pass them by and act as if I didn’t notice them. It would also be easy to rationalize that they may be scamming me. How can I tell if this person really needs the money? Truth is, in most cases I won’t know. My personal philosophy is…”I rather give to the one who didn’t need, than miss the one who did”.

We are our brothers’ keeper!!!

    Yes, I also agree, we are our brother’s keeper! God never intended for us to live this life for ourselves. We are here on this earth for the sole purpose to be imitators of Christ, which is all about LOVE!…our greatest commandment! Love the Lord our God, then love ye one another. And that which you love, you want the best to come to them.

    That’s a very good philosophy…
    On the same line as “I would rather live as if there is a God and die to discover that there isn’t than to live as if there isn’t a God and die to discover that there is.

    May God richly bless you in your endeavors!
