How You Can Help Change a Poverty Mentality in Your Community

"The biblical definition of poverty is you do not know where your next meal is coming from." —Dr. E. Calvin Beisner

There's a burden we all share as working Christians: The poor. We, the body of Christ, are the answer.

It takes five to seven years to move a person from a poverty mentality to self-sufficiency. It takes our hands and feet. It takes a life on life commitment.

Poverty will not be solved by throwing money at it. But you can fund the hands and feet who are called to work with the poor day to day, with your paycheck, your company's revenue stream or with the funds God has entrusted to you.

And it's not just money. It's one-on-one investment of your time—your life into the life of another.

Proverbs 19:17 (NIV) says, "Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done."

How will you and your workplace lend to the Lord in your community today?
