-- David McDonald in Outrageous Fortune: Documenting Canada's Wealth Gap, p.5.
The poor are always prophetic. As true prophets, they always reveal God's design. That is why we should take time to listen to them. And that means staying near them, because they speak quietly and infrequently; they are afraid to speak out, they lack confidence in themselves because they have been broken and oppressed. But if we listen to them, they will bring us back to the things that are essential.
