In this compelling, final month’s series on “Soil,” Dr. E. Dewey Smith, Jr. describes two men, Lazarus, a beggar, who sat at the gates of a rich man’s home, desiring to be fed the crumbs that fell from the rich man’s table. The second was a rich man who wanted for nothing, yet he denied Lazarus the crumbs from his table. In death, Lazarus was carried by angels into the bosom of Abraham, while the rich man was buried and went to hell. As the rich man lifted up his eyes and saw Lazarus in Abraham’s bosom from afar, he cried out and begged for mercy. Is it possible the man’s fate was tied to how he treated Lazarus?
