Trust and Alms

“Is some poor person asking you for help? Even if you doubt his situation, you should still help him discreetly so that you are not tempted by negative thoughts. Do you know what Abba Isaac says? ‘If someone on horseback should stretch out his hand and ask alms of you, do not refuse him, for at that moment he is certainly in need.’  You never know what state he may be in. You should believe what the other person tells you -and give as you are asked.”

Trust; Generosity
