Two Poor Men


One of the Chofetz Chaim’s students asked him for a blessing for livelihood.  The Chofetz Chaim answered, “It leads to an absurdity, that one poor man turns to a second poor man for help, at a time when both of them can turn to a rich Father.

It is He who proclaims and says ‘Mine is silver, Mine is gold’ and ‘Salvation is from Hashem.’”
