What does it mean to “Extend Hope to the Poor?” You hear it all the time around Southland and Global Outreach champions this.
I’d love to challenge you to think about the word POOR. Our society sees that word and immediately thinks of material items. The Bible refers to the poor over 300 times. Come on, some verses just came to mind, didn’t they? Many of those verses are specific to material items, but some refer to spiritual poverty.
As we GO and serve in Haiti or Austria — GOing should be normal behavior for us. Our call is to provide hope to the poor. But if we don’t know how a person is poor (materially or spiritually), how do we do that?
Southland answers that question by working with partners in Haiti and Austria. These are the people who live there full time and know way more than we ever could by living there. We trust them to answer that question for us and then allow us to serve alongside them in their ministry. Sometimes that means teaching English, or handing out Meal Pack food; other days it’s sending medical teams and hosting Bible Camp.
We will not be able to alleviate poverty in the world, but we can be the hands and feet of Jesus.
