A home with a revolving set of parents
A home where parents scream at each other and at the children
A home where parents throw things at each other and at the children
A home where parents have no interest in what children are learning in school, or whether they are learning anything at all
A home with no books
A home where relatives, neighbours and friends all have that kind of home.
Such a home is a breeding ground for emotional, spiritual, intellectual and economic poverty. Government programs that provide economic help offer only palliative care.
Saving faith in Jesus Christ offers hope that things can be different, peace in the midst of turmoil, joy in a relationship with a loving heavenly Father, patience when things go wrong, perseverance to keep trying, compassion and love for those near and dear who are still trapped in poverty. This is the escape route from poverty in all its forms.
