Jesus Christ, the Son of God said it best, “the poor will be here always and when you wish, you may help them” (Mark 14:7).
The needs of men will never be eliminated from the earth and all of us should be doing something to help deserving souls (Galatians 6:10). Hurricane Harvey left a lot of damage in the South, and now is a good time to reach out to the people down there.
However, a con person doesn’t deserve help. He is simply trying to take advantage of people’s generosity, and he doesn’t deserve to eat (2 Thessalonians 3:10).
But, you don’t have to go to Texas to give help to deserving persons because we have plenty of cases right here in Philadelphia.
So yes, Houston has a problem, but so do we all if we don’t learn that everything is temporary, and tomorrow anyone can be needing help.
