Material Poverty vs Spiritual Poverty

John Stott says it this way: "The church should bear witness to the biblical paradox of poverty, by opposing one kind and encouraging the other.  We should set ourselves both to eradicate the evil of material poverty and to cultivate the good of spiritual poverty.  We should hate injustice and love humility.  It is in these two ways that the gospel can be said to be 'good news to the poor.'"
