Mark 14: 7: “For the poor you always have with you, and whenever you wish, you can do them good.” It’s one of those promises of God that His children rarely claim: the poor will always be among us (Deuteronomy 15: 11). But why, don’t His principles work? Sure they do. And one of those principles is that God’s people seek out the poor, go to where they are, and even invite them into their own homes, if necessary. If there are no poor in the Church, the Church isn’t doing its job.
