Let the poor be members of your household
Yosef ben Yochanan continues: "Let the poor be like members of your family." When poor people come to your house, make them feel as welcome and comfortable as your own family. Help them in whatever way you can and be careful not to hurt their feelings. Greet them in a friendly way.
