Personal Reflection
The infographic listed a variety of ways to help those in poverty. Are you responding to this great need in any of these ways? What’s a first or next step you can take today? Remember that even a small step has a significant impact on those in extreme poverty. One simple step would be to share this infographic with your friends and family as a way to raise awareness!

Engaging the Church
Do you know the ministries your church is already supporting that address extreme poverty? How could you be a part of strengthening your church’s ties with those ministries? The action points in the infographic point to a holistic approach to poverty. Is your church thinking through the variety of ways that the poor need support and encouragement? You can be a champion in your church for a comprehensive approach to extreme poverty.

Organizational Application
If your ministry is focused on serving the poor, you have spent your life understanding the complexities of poverty. But for others reading poverty may not be well understood or addressed in your ministries. How are you as a ministry working with the poor? How are you educating and equipping others to understand poverty and respond in their respective causes? If your ministry has not engaged the poor well, what is a first step to imagining how your work could bless those with so little?
