The Hole in Our Gospel: Day 17

I am out of town for a few days, but I wanted to share a quote from today's reading in "The Hole in Our Gospel."  In my mind, it's food for thought and should make us all think about what we should be doing.
The Bible is clear from the Old Testament through the New that God's people always had a responsibility to see that everyone in their society was cared for at a basic-needs level...It is not our fault that people are poor, but it IS our responsibility to do something about it.  God says that we are guilty if we allow people to remain deprived when we have the means to help them.  --Richard Stearns, pg. 123
