    Go work for the poorest of the poor…..anywhere….there’s plenty of them….no competition there…..and then come back and criticize. Talk is cheap. That is what most the world seems to have realized ….this lady was not about talk….she was about sharing the love Christ with all in need. What are you sharing?
