Weekend Wisdom: Charity vs Investment

Today’s quote comes from a new book I am reading – The Conservative Heart by Arthur C. Brooks.

It is an absolutely wonderful quote and the truth. In order for poor people to rise about their circumstances, the rest of us need to invest time and energy into helping them. There are numerous ways you can help poor folks and I will leave it to you to use your imagination and figure out how to invest in the poor.
