How We Define Being “Poor”

Lack of money doesn’t necessarily make one poor. Some of us are poor because of the way we have lost our love and fear of God. We are a people who — when we were captured and brought here — lost everything.

We lost our whole culture because the so-called Christian slave owner, in order to be master over us, had to make sure all we knew was what he allowed us to know. Thus, our culture, our way of life, had to be about him. He stole everything we had and knew about ourselves. Except our physical being. And in some instances, he cut us off from that too

Whatever you sow you shall reap. So our God is a loving God, but he is also a just God. He watches in judgment and the word of God says the poor and orphans will get their just inheritance.

Thank you, Street Sense.
