Wherever a man turns, he can find someone who needs him.
(Albert Schweitzer, 20th century German medical missionary and philosopher)
“No man is an island,” wrote John Donne. Stated another way, an African proverb says, “It takes a village.” We don’t live to ourselves; we must be aware of those around us, and very often, we’ll see someone in need. The question is, “How will we respond?”
There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land. (Deuteronomy 15:11)
