Blog Action Day: Poverty - All Of These Things, Need Not Be...

I only learned about Blog Action Day: Poverty, the day before the event. But, as soon as I realized what was going on, and how great it would be to have so many fellow bloggers, blogging about the same important topic, on one single day - I just knew that I had to be a part of the conversation. This, is my very small contribution, on the topic of Poverty.

Poverty - all of these things, need not be...

In a world of plenty, where some have only a scant,

these things, need not be.

A lack of the means of providing material needs or comforts,

All of these things, need not be.

Un-productiveness, for lack of mentoring,

need not be.

Neediness is not necessary,

and need not be.

Destitution is unacceptable,

and need not be.

Individual hardship,

Is a road that knows many travelers...

and must needs be.

IF there were not those, with great need, then not one of us would ever come to know - who we really are, and the depths of our own souls.

Would you
lift up the down trodden, to where you have found comfort, rest and peace?

Would you
embrace a reduced brother, to build up his knowledge; about the worth of a soul?

Would you
give of yourself, and of your means to others; even upon finding that in doing so - you, yourself and your own, are now equal?

Pride is, "the great stumbling block" to all of these things;

for until we truly understand all of our equality, before God... all of these things, will STILL be.

"When ye have done it unto the least of these... ",
ye have done it - unto Yourself.
