How many coats do I have? Jackets? Sweaters? What if I were to give one away to someone who has none.

How many cans, bottles, boxes, packages of food are in my cupboards? What if I were to give some away to the hungry.

God’s prophets point us to the Way of generous awareness of the needs of others.

[John the Baptist said to them,] “Whoever has two cloaks should share with the person who has none.  And whoever has food should do likewise.” Luke 3:11
