The crowds asked Yochanan, “So then, what should we do?” He answered, “Whoever has two coats should share with somebody who has none, and whoever has food should do the same.” Tax-collectors also came to be immersed; and they asked him, “Rabbi, what should we do?” “Collect no more than the government assesses,” he told them. Some soldiers asked him, “What about us? What should we do?” To them he said, “Don’t intimidate anyone, don’t accuse people falsely, and be satisfied with your pay.”
Careing for our fellow man has always been commanded of us. With the number of congregations in the US alone no one should be hungry, but too many focus on money or power or pestige and leave this task from God to poorly run government agencies. God fogive us for the selfish country we have become. I ask this in Yeshua’s name amen.
