Spiritual Poverty

"When I pick up a hungry person from the street, I give him a plate of rice, a piece of bread. But a person who is shut out, who feels unwanted, unloved, terrified, the person who has been thrown out of society - that spiritual poverty is much harder to overcome."

(Mother Teresa)


This quote really moved my heart this morning. We get so wrapped up in our own lives that we forget how many people are truly suffering in this world. After reading her quote today I found myself crying out to God and asked Him to build my ministry in the streets, not on a stage. I want to help everyone, not just those who come to my conferences or events. God, help me to never drive by the homeless as I travel to a stage to preach!!
