FROM LIFE: We Can All Do Something For The Poor
We can all do something for the poor.
Below are some ideas:
Be aware of what’s going on in your family/street/work etc. Who are the poor in your surroundings? Is there a colleague whose expenses are beyond his wage? An elderly neighbour who is poor or lonely? A child who needs someone to read with?
Have a heart. Try to feel the suffering of the poor and what it might mean to live at the risk of poverty.
Live simply, consume less. If there was a low-wage earner buying this car with me, would I feel comfortable buying it? Buy what you need rather than what you like. Ask: Do I really need 5 pairs of jeans or will 3 pairs be enough? A reduction in demand will also lower prices making them more accessible to those who do not afford much.
