The poor should not be expected to be burdened with more responsibility than they can handle. Those who can bear the burden with greater ease would do well to exhibit the level of responsibility they expect others to carry out.
Jesus says the greatest commandment is to love God and to love our neighbors. But is our ability to carry out our primary purpose troubled by a dominant culture defined by hastiness? How can we best share the Brethren way of peace when everyone is in such a hurry?
