poverty

A Quote by Raymond Hitchcock on acceptance, blessings, charity, christianity, culture, extremism, hospitality, necessity, poverty, trust, and wealth

Wealth is not of necessity a curse, nor poverty a blessing. Wholesome and easy abundance is better than either extreme; better for our manhood that we have enough for daily comfort; enough for culture, for hospitality, for Christian charity. More than this may or may not be a blessing. Certainly it can be a blessing only by being accepted as a trust.
