In a Time magazine article, it was reported that at least 1.1 billion people live in extreme poverty, which is defined as deprivation of basic human needs. In Matthew 25, Jesus himself comes to us as one of those in extreme poverty. He sums it up as caring for the poor is not an option, as Christians we are called to do so.
1. What would you be able to say if Jesus asked us someday how we cared for the poor?
2. Have you ever struggled with giving to those in poverty?
Challenge: Pray for eyes that are able to see Jesus in those who are less fortunate.
