“Mankind was my business.
The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy,
forbearance, benevolence, were all my business.
The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the
comprehensive ocean of my business!”
Jacob Marley from The Christmas Carol
If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?
If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. (1 John 3:17-18 NIV)
