God has always wanted the vulnerable in society to be cared for. He never intended for them to languish in poverty, abuse, slavery, homelessness, or other types of devastation. When we care for individuals who are trapped in these ways, when we show them love and help them move toward freedom and wholeness, we participate in bringing a little part of God’s Kingdom back into alignment with His greater plan. We do justice and God smiles.

You have completed the OptionsTogether™ Bible study! As you have prayed, studied, and watched, you have likely grown in your understanding of people who experience poverty. You’ve also learned about ways God may be calling you to engage with those on the margins. So, what’s next?
In this module, you will have an opportunity to discuss what you have learned. Then, we will take time to pray and ask God to help you process your thoughts, feelings, and calling to next steps.
