We live in a broken world, but we sometimes limit our definition of brokenness to things that are readily visible or that get lots of media attention. Poverty is one sign of the world’s brokenness and addressing issues of poverty has long been a goal of the universal church. Unfortunately, we often fail to see poverty in all its forms by limits our definition of poverty to economic terms. Jesus described many kinds of brokenness and impoverishment, and we should see our neighbors with the lens Jesus used when we share his love with those who suffer from poverty in its many forms.
