September 15th -
Previously we determined to contribute according to our various abilities. We do this at home, at work, at school, and in the community. When we don’t have the required personal expertise, we get help, we hire the help. The decision then becomes one of prudence. We remain judicious in our expenditures, but also, we should be fair in the compensation we give for services we hire. Prudent does not mean cheapskate. Cost and benefits need to be compared. Timing is also an important consideration, what would be sensible to do next week may not be feasible today. Far-sightedness, considering how our decisions and investments of this day will serve us in the future is also important. Good judgment is fostered by considering the needs and the opinions of all of those involved.
