Poor will always be with us. No matter how rich a country is there are always those suffering with poverty. Whether caused by financial catastrophe, personal trauma, mental illness, addiction or the almost infinite number of other trials that effect human beings, we have homeless individuals and families living among us.
While the loss of material resources is difficult and certainly the most visible affliction of homelessness, it is the loss of hope and the absence of love caused by poverty that is most tragic. It is in this condition that people lose sight of the purpose of life and burrow deep within themselves closing off the world around them.
Thankfully, God in his infinite wisdom, makes it both easy and inexpensive to show love to our fellow man.
