In prison, I came to the lowest level of poverty. I possessed nothing, which made me look in a new light at this verse- ‘Rob not the poor, because he is poor. Neither oppress the afflicted in the gate’ (Proverbs 22:22).
Do not rob the poor of his only wealth, that precious jewel, poverty itself. St. Francis of Assisi spoke about ‘sorella poverta,” sister poverty. Ascetics and saints of all ages have abandoned earthly joys for this valuable friend.
In one of the many mountain villages of Romania lives a godly old carpenter named Christian Wolfkes who has a fervent love for the Jews. He desires to win a Jew for Christ, but there are none in his village and he is too ill to travel in search of a Jew with whom he could share the gospel. A young Jewish man and his wife arrive in Christian Wolfkes’ village. For hours the old carpenter prays for these Jewish strangers and seeks, by all means possible, to lead them to the Savior. The elderly carpenter gives them a New Testament. The Jewish strangers, Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand, eventually dedicate their lives to Jesus Christ.
