I am one of the world’s highly privileged Haves.

Not that there aren’t many people who own more wealth and property than I, but with regard to the entire human population, I have been hugely fortunate in receiving resources, opportunities, support and encouragement throughout my life, only slightly because I may have “deserved” or “earned” a right to such preferences.

For such great good fortune, then, I should first feel humble gratitude but then assist others to receive similar benefits to offset the arbitrary misfortunes befalling them.

From those to whom much has been given, much is expected—blessings for blessings; for who can claim a right to greater fortune than another?
