What did Jesus say about poverty? Today's news is full of speculation and debate about the national debt, taxes and potential cuts to vital programs that serve those in need. However, the conversation often seems overly caught up in the minutiae of politics and media coverage rather than the real people that these decisions affect.
In our search for wisdom on the matter, we thought it appropriate to turn to the teachings of Jesus -- someone who had plenty to say about what was really important.
Verses from the New Revised Standard Version.
