a bigger picture.

"The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in. The world would take people out of the slums. Christ takes the slums out of people, and then they take themselves out of the slums. The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes men, who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature."

Ezra Taft Benson

Love the poor, the orphan, the widow, the starving, the broken, the wounded, the neighbor, but not so as to change or influence merely their circumstances and behavior: labor in prayerful love for Christ to change the heart.
