Have you ever stopped to really think about poverty? Have you ever thought about the complexity of its construct, it being persistent and unrelenting? Can its cycles be broken by the poorest and the powerless? What is known is that the poor and their change is wrapped in the hearts and minds of those who still believe they have been called into being with a purpose. Equipping the poor with the supportive care they will need to do better will require a lot more than a heated verbal exchange over who is right and who is wrong when it comes to public taxpayer-financed public supports. If practicality to policymakers means funding prisons over primary education, then the poor just as well recline well in their misfortune. Seeing hurting, hungry, and hopeless people calls us to respond. And we must not respond as we have always done, but instead we must respond as a servant. We must stretch our hands forth and open our arms wide to bring relief to their suffering. By mirroring the heart of God we, as believers, can profoundly change the world with our faith. Patricia Ferguson shares her groundbreaking "quotable" insights on how American public policy can radically change poverty as we know it, when fused with principles of a servants heart. Our current policies are conceived in a vacuum and there is little the poor can do to change it. They cannot help themselves out of poverty without the careful crafting of legislation with the same intent. Using biblical truths, Ferguson details how new legislation must be written to overhaul the current economy of the poor.
