Hidden Words: Deepening Day 24, Our Relationship to Each Other (P49, 54)

Bahá’u’lláh also makes it clear that we are to take care of each other, as is demonstrated in the next two Hidden Words presented, in which He speaks of the responsibility of the “rich” to care for the “poor“.

“O CHILDREN OF DUST! Tell the rich of the midnight sighing of the poor, lest heedlessness lead them into the path of destruction, and deprive them of the Tree of Wealth. To give and to be generous are attributes of Mine; well is it with him that adorneth himself with My virtues.” [Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, No. P49.]

“O YE RICH ONES ON EARTH! The poor in your midst are My trust; guard ye My trust, and be not intent only on your own ease.” 
[Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, No. P54.]
