wanna get close to Jesus?

you may have already seen this, but i just saw it again tonight. worth reading again and again.

The poor are where God lives.

God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house.

God is where the opportunity is lost and lives are shattered.

God is with the mother who has infected her child with the virus that will take both their lives.

God is under the rubble and the cries we hear during war time.

God, my friends, is with the poor.

And God is with us, if we are with them.


Wanna get close to Jesus? Go help the poor and hurting.
