wise fridays: sharpen the     reception on  your WiFri

[If a rich man said to a poor man],”Why don’t you go out and work at a job? Look at those thighs! Look at those legs! Look at that belly! Look at that brawn!” The Holy One will then say to the rich man, “Is it not enough for you that you gave him nothing of yours? Must you also begrudge what I gave him?”

Leviticus Rabba 34:7
