Am I interfering in God's administration by helping poor people?

Ms. Thrylokya asked: Swami, You said that all people are under the administration of God. Am I interfering in God's administration by helping poor people?

Swami replied: God made a sinner, who looted others wealth by corruption to be born as a poor fellow in this world so that he/she understands the pain of the looser of wealth due to corruption. The punishment has been implemented on that soul and it is going on. Suppose you have sympathized with and helped such a poor person. First you must notice that the poor person received your help. This itself means that the poor person is blessed by God, perhaps, due to his repentance and prayers to God. Reduction of punishment due to good conduct is possible in law. You must note that you are also under the full control of the divine administration of God. Repentance and prayers to God reduces some seriousness of the punishment and hence you were able to help him and he is able to receive your help. If the poor man is not of the above type with continuous ego and bad sinful nature, even if you try to help the poor man, the poor person will be unable to receive your help. Even if he receives your help, your help will go to waste in some unexpected way. But, your intention and your good deed are appreciated by God and this merit will be credited in your account of cycle of deeds. You need not suppress your good angle fearing for the interference in the divine administration. Sometimes, you are very clever to deny your help to the poor person to such false pretext covering your greediness! Such behavior from your side will be credited to the account of punishments of your cycle of deeds!
