Hi guys this is just an excerpt from my new Rasta book I am working on….This is on the belief of Charity. Bet you didn’t know we thought like this…
Rastafari believe that those who have money have been given a blessing and a Responsibility by the Most High.
Rastafari believe that money is to be given away to the Poor and needy.
Hording Money is a Sin
We believe that for one to know there are poor people who could make great use of that money that we have accumulated, and yet continue to hoard, as numbers on a bank statement…is a sin. Jah does not like this.
As Rastafari we “know” that to have a great deal of money means we are chosen to act as Delivers and caregivers of the poor and hungry and share the money.
Rasta Responsibility with Wealth
- As Rasta once we have accumulated a good amount of money we know 3 things
- We were chosen to have this great wealth
- It is our duty as Servants of Jah to Share the wealth
To have food to eat each day is a blessing that we share with those who don’t have by sharing our wealth and abundance.
Rasta is very aware that every time we fill our bellies there is someone who is going without. Not because we have filled our bellies, but a full belly reminds us that some have and some do not have.
Rasta believe greatly in giving to the poor, needy and the hungry.
How I support “Charity”
Every time I get paid I buy a homeless person on the street something to eat big or small. I acknowledge them with a smile, and conversation. I know Jah is watching and it creates good Karma for me. It doesn’t have to be a lot of money. You could buy someone a $5 or $10 meal, once, a week or once every 2 weeks. Your belly is full so help someone else’s belly to be full too.
