"Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him. You will eat the first of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours."  Psalms 128:1-2

How can giving food to someone who is hungry actually harm them?

  • Before we answer that, we need to look at how we define poverty:

Many people define it as a simple lack of material things. They say, That "these people" do not have enough food, money, clean water, medicine, housing, etc...

  • But when you ask the materially poor to define poverty, you'll hear things like: 

I'm inferior, ashamed, powerless; I feel less than human and I feel like I cannot change my life.

Feelings of shame, inferiority, and  powerlessness are only made worse when we give handouts.
If we aren't careful, we can treat the symptoms instead of addressing the underlying illness, and our help can be harmful, impacting community resilience.
