The parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man reminds us that hell is a real danger. If we reject helping those in need, we might find ourselves permanently residing in the netherworld, pleading for a drop of water to cool our tongue.
Serving the Poor
Helping those in need isn’t about you. The wealthy often think they know what is best for everyone they deem “poor”. They think because someone is poor, they must be doing something wrong as if there’s always, without exception, a correlation between not having enough money and making bad decisions.
