Matthew 5:3 Blessed are the Poor.
Jesus said that the poor are blessed. He told us to feed them and to love them. He also said the poor will always be with us. We are to minister to the poor. Winnie and I have been working directly with the poor for the last 3 decades.
We want to work with the mindset of the poor. Not only feed them, not only helping them, but to change their mind set. We are on our 3rd generation here, and now improvement. Jesus is in control. We know He wants us to do everything possible..
This is by the found of Alibaba. It’s kind of sad, but it’s true. It does give me hope and direction although he doesn’t seem to be a believer, kind of cold.. but this is incredibly accurate… Now HOW do WE change this mindset?
Referring to Poor mindset…
Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba said “The worst people to serve are the Poor people.
Give them free, they think it’s a trap.
Tell them it’s a small investment, they’ll say can’t earn much.
Tell them to come in big, they’ll say no money.
Tell them try new things, they’ll say no experience.
Tell them it’s traditional business, they’ll say hard to do.
Tell them it’s a new business model, they’ll say it’s MLM.
Tell them to run a shop, they’ll say no freedom.
Tell them run new business, they’ll say no expertise.
They do have some things in common:
They love to ask google, listen to friends who are as hopeless as them, they think more than an university professor and do less than a blind man.
Just ask them, what can they do. They won’t be able to answer you.
Instead of your heart beats faster, why not you just act faster a bit; instead of just thinking about it, why not do something about it.
Poor people fail because of one common behavior:
Their Whole Life is About Waiting.”
