All of us are shocked by the poverty of millions and disturbed by the injustices which cause it. Those of us who live in affluent circumstances accept our duty to develop a simple life-style in order to contribute more generously to both relief and evangelism. (Jn 9:4; Mt9:35-38; Rom 9:1-3; 1 Cor 9:19-23; Mk 16:15; Is 58:6,7; Jas 1:27; 2:1-9; Mt 25:31-46; Acts 2:44, 45; 4:34, 35).
