Odd that a word that is used to describe the poorest of the poor has such richness at its core. You will be blessed if you take the time to explore this word. It labels all sorts of groups who have made it their mission to be a real blessing to those who need it most. They provide not only housing, food, clothing - but more importantly companionship, community and love.

And, when we manage to apply the word to ourselves we find that we are most useful to God when we recognize our own ineptitude and his Power.
