Thanks Scott for the thoughtful posting today.

Too often our motives smacks of paternalism {as do the words downtrodden, underclass} I the wealthy westerner, reach out in compassion to help you improve yourself. We see ourselves as on the side of Christ by giving to the needy, Mathew 25 makes it plain however that Jesus is on the side of the poor, and we serve best by elevating the downtrodden to the place of Jesus... - Mahatma Gandhi
