I can't explain why God has allowed the distribution of wealth on this planet as it is, and I know the poor we will always have with us. What I do know is that He is expecting us to intelligently and strategically help our neighbours who have less resources. He is particularly interested in us finding and supporting those who have no means of support. So countries and Territories like ours are supposed to extend ourselves accordingly.
The extent of this concern is supposed to be until all have what they need to survive and even prosper. This will require even more effort on our part than we are already exercising. I believe the time is right for us to put our best minds together and demonstrate the providing love of God around the world. We have the means. Do we have the passion?
2 Corinthians 9:9 (NIV)
9 As it is written: "He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor; his righteousness endures forever."
