Does this “remember the poor” (Galatians 2:10)?
Jesus and his followers declared the good news of the kingdom through both words and deeds to the blind, the lame, the deaf, the mute, the leper, and the poor (Luke 7:18-23; 9:1-2; 10:9). Multitudes of biblical passages make clear that God measures cultures and peoples by what they do about the poorest among them. As the body of Christ, we are to create an alternative culture that declares this kingdom in both words and deed – especially to the least of these. We believe embracing our own mutual brokenness is central to poverty alleviation so that we can truly help others without hurting them and ourselves.
