“Yasher Koach” to faithful Christians

Leave a comment

“Yasher Koach” is a common Hebrew phrase, uttered as a compliment to a person who has performed a mitzvah, a commandment.   Multiple news stories have reported in recent days that charitable giving has decreased among the wealthy, while it has increased among the poor and middle class.  (So much for the “makers” vs the “takers”) Most notably, charitable giving has increased in the Evangelical  “Bible Belt” and in Utah (lots of Mormons).  It has decreased in the “Yankee” states of New Hampshire and Maine.  It appears, to this unsophisticated eye, that serious and faithful Christians continue to step up and help, regardless of their personal financial situation.  To my Christian brothers and sisters, yasher koach!
