We are helping the poor and educating the helpless......Shouldn't we be Educating the poor and helping the helpless?
There is a HUGE difference between being POOR and being HELPLESS. We are helping the poor by giving the milk for free. Why would they buy the cow if they get the milk for free? Shouldn't we educate them on rich thoughts? Some people are poor by either poverty created over which they don't have control, or some are poor by choice.
Then we have the helpless....the disabled.....the children that have no power over the actions of adults etc. We always seem to educate them on how to help themselves, or how to get help......shouldn't we rather help THEM instead of helping the poor that can actually help themselves as well?
