"Do as I say, not as I do"

I was thinking last night that I’m a big fan of that philosophy in most cases. While I totally understand the opposing viewpoint of “Physician, heal thyself,” I don’t necessarily think it’s the most helpful in dealing with real-life issues. If a bum on the street approaches me and asks for a dollar so he can get food or booze or whatever, and he tells me, “You should be saving up for your retirement,” does his poverty negate the value of the advice?
