You never know when the other shoe is going to drop. You never know when you will be the one in pain--in need. You never know when you will be the one required to rely on the kindness of strangers.Do not oppress the widow, the orphan, the alien, or the poor; and do not devise evil in your hearts against one another.Zechariah 7:10
Even if you have everything you need and a big fat offshore bank account to boot, you never know when you might become one of the least of these. Some of us are not very far from that at the moment ourselves.
You never know.
Listen to your mother...be nice.
