The King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take- your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we do these things?' The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me...' From Matthew 25

Despite all our scientific advances in agriculture, engineering and medicine, millions of people in the world live in poverty without basic necessities. Poverty isn't confined to the third world, although that is certainly where there is most need. Everyday people die of preventable illness and starvation. As Christians, we are called not only to spread the message of salvation through Christ, but also to love like Christ did and to serve our neighbours in need.
