Letters to the Editor

Love is the answer

On Sept. 25, The Bee wrote that the city proposes to provide 30 shelters for homeless. This sounds great, but it is not enough.

The Bible teaches that "though I give all my goods to feed the poor, but have not love, it profits me nothing." It is easy to toss a coin to a beggar. We purchase relief at the cost of a coin. This is too cheap for us and too expensive for the beggar.

If we really cared for him, really loved him, we would do more. Please continue to help the homeless with the thoughts of compassion that you suggest in your Sept. 26 editorial, for without love, 30 shelters is not the solution in helping the homeless.
