Anyone who is working towards poverty alleviation, social justice, mercy ministry or whatever you want to call it, should have their nose in this book. I won’t summarize it for you simply put I’m learning:
- Just because we have money doesn’t mean we know how to fix poverty
- Giving relief money to impoverished communities often hurts the people more than helps
- Spiritually speaking, we are just as “poor” as they are
- Rather than giving money towards relief, we should give money towards rehabilitation and development in the community
There is so much more I wish I could explain. I encourage anyone with a slight interest in social justice or helping the poor to read this book.
