In today’s post you will see images of poverty around the world, from here in the USA to Africa, Pakistan, etc.
Jesus commands US to DO, not to sit around and wait for someone else to do it.
I hope this will help raise your level of awareness.
Shocking contrast isn’t it?
Yes, animals too…these are “street dogs.”
Look closely at the artwork on this book cover…the strong fist of poverty is breaking through the floor of the ballroom…
This is poverty in Appalachia…not far from here…
Poverty in Alabama 1938
A neglected dog…
The wealthy on the left, the poor on the right receiving food. Not much has changed, has it?
Kids living in the dumps of Pakistan.
Scrounging for food among the trash. Pakistan.
( After receiving a comment about this post I am adding this remark…)
While I may have chosen the wrong word-scrounging-the purpose of this post is to raise awareness about poverty around the world. The author of the comment has responded below in the comment section of the post. These people are “recycling paper, plastic etc., to sell – in order to buy food.” Please pray for the people around the world who live in poverty, are underfed, abused, homeless and alone.

Matthew 5:14 (The Message)
14-16“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
Shine on readers! You are the only JESUS some people and animals may ever see.
God Bless you all!
