We live in a world that glorifies being rich and looks down on those who struggle or are found in the margins of society. Jesus, however, always seemed to be drawn towards those that were generally marginalised or shunned.
The writer of the Proverbs calls us to be like Jesus in this way. Read Proverbs 14:31 here – http://bit.ly/2H0MURK
The poor are all around us and we can start by seeing them, by asking their name and extending some dignity and humanity to them as we maybe listen to their story or share a meal together.
