Servant or Sucker? Wise and Compassionate Ways to Help the Poor


Weve all been there. Someone, obviously poor or homeless, approaches you and asks for money. What do you do? Do you give money, knowing it may be used on drugs or alcohol or do you say no or even ignore the person as you walk by? No one wants to be a sucker in these situations but at the same time Jesus call to help the poor echoes in our hearts and minds. This DVD helps viewers discern appropriate, Christ-centered actions when it comes to addressing poverty on a personal or organizational level. Included are realities of poverty such as the concepts of time, relationships, money and values; a poverty tour; interviews with those who are homeless or poor; interviews with those who have helped and/or have been suckered; and steps viewers can take to be an effective servant without getting suckered.
