Why Not Be a Beggar?

Share Your Wealth

What we give to the poor
for Christ’s sake
is what we carry with us
when we die.
As Jean Jacques Rousseau says:
“When man dies
he carries
in his clutched hands
only that
which he has given away.”

The Wisdom of Giving

To give money to the poor
is to enable the poor to buy.
To enable the poor to buy
is to improve the market.
To improve the market
is to help business.
To help business
is to reduce unemployment.
To reduce unemployment
is to reduce crime.
To reduce crime
is to reduce taxation.
So why not give to the poor
for business’ sake.
for humanity’s sake,
for God’s sake?
