Even though good intentions abound, we often seek to work for the poor or work with the poor and I know by doing this we suffocate local resourcefulness. By doing this we can further imbed poverty, that is the form of poverty that results when our friends already feel inadequate
We should not just be stating our feelings about poverty, suffering etc. We should be working tirelessly to build the Kingdom of Heaven of grace, peace, kindness in all our communities across the globe. We should remind ourselves that poverty is man-made and can be wiped out if only we change not only our thinking but our actions in how we respond.
