Beloved,None of us know what the future holds for us in life. We can only attest to what we have experienced. The wise instruction from Sarach teaches us how we should treat one another. My mother always taught me to treat people like I wanted to be treated, not necessarily how they treat me. Both are profound as we all know we reap all that we sow. May our sowing be pleasing into the Lord Almighty.
God Bless You,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
“Son, you should not cheat the poor out of alms, nor should you avert your eyes from a poor man. You should not despise the hungry soul, and you should not aggravate a poor man in his need. You should not afflict the heart of the needy, and you should not delay an offer to someone in anguish. You should not make requests of one who is greatly troubled, and you should not avert your face from the indigent. You should not avert your eyes from the needy out of anger. And you should not abandon those who seek help from you, so that they speak curses behind your back.”
Sirach 4:1-5 CPDV
