Opportunity for charity precedes judgment

Shlah-VaYera

These are the words of the Zohar: ‘Rabbi Elazar says: Come see how benevolently the Holy One Blessed is He acts toward all people… for even at a time that He intends to judge the world, He causes the one He loves an avenue of merit prior to the judgment coming to the world, as we have learned: When the Holy One Blessed is He loves a person, He sends him… a poor person through whom to gain merit.'”

(Shlah, Parshas VaYera)
