PU 019: Eight Reasons to Get Personally Involved with the Poor

Anne McCain shares eight reasons for Christians to develop personal relationships with the poor beyond reading the newspaper and sending money.

  1. Christ ministered to people personally – Mark 7:31-35
  2. It reminds us that the masses of poor people are real people
  3. It allows those in poverty to give to us
  4. It impassions our prayers
  5. We see God bring change
  6. It challenges us personally in our own walk with God – James 2:5
  7. It motivates us to action
  8. Christ tells us that when we care personally for the poor, we are caring personally for him – Matthew 25:31-40
