Where is God in Poverty?

"Can overfed, comfortably clothed, and luxuriously housed persons understand poverty? Can we truly feel what it is like to be a nine-year old boy playing outside a village school he can not attend because his father is unable to afford the books? Can we comprehend what it means for poverty- stricken parents to watch with helpless grief as their baby daughter dies of common childhood disease because they, like at least one-quarter of our global neighbors today, lack access to elementary health services? Can we grasp the awful truth that thirty-four thousand children die every day of hunger and preventable diseases?"
