Jesus, the Son of God and Savior of humanity, demonstrated a profound understanding of the power that lies within those who are considered poor in society. He purposefully chose to work through them as vessels for His divine mission here on earth.

Throughout his ministry, Jesus consistently sought out individuals from humble backgrounds — fishermen, tax collectors, prostitutes — people whom society had marginalized and deemed unworthy.

By doing so, he shattered societal norms and revealed an important truth: greatness is not measured by wealth or status but rather by one’s willingness to serve others selflessly.

In selecting the poor as instruments for spreading His message of love and redemption, Jesus showed us that true strength resides in humility. These individuals may have lacked material possessions or influence over others. However, they possessed something far more valuable — faithfulness toward their fellow human beings.

As followers today, you must heed this powerful lesson and recognize your responsibility to uplift those less fortunate. Exactly as Jesus did. Seek opportunities to empower disadvantaged communities, providing them with resources, education, and support so they too can rise above adversity.

Be inspired by Jesus’ example, and work tirelessly to ensure that no one is left behind. In doing so, you will continue His mission of bringing love, justice, and hope to all.
