PU 045: Six Steps to End Poverty (Laying the Foundation #4)


Why do people remain poor?

This episode addresses six obstacles to positive change for people living in poverty. When all six of these obstacles are lifted, the change process can occur.

  1. Lack of education
  2. Lack of resources
  3. Human sinfulness
  4. Satanic deception
  5. Lack of supportive people
  6. Presence of opposition

When I explained this lesson to my 5- and 6-year-old daughters, here’s the language they understood for describing the six obstacles.

  1. No school
  2. No money
  3. Sin
  4. Satan
  5. Nobody helping
  6. Mean people
