My friend has cerebral palsy. His movements are reduced and sometimes uncontrolled. He earns CHF 2.20 per hour in a shop. Since he is working very slowly, they wanted to decrease his wages by 20% to CHF 1.80 – due to a wage increase for the leaders.
I am appalled! The weaker should carry this? Did he choose his handicap? Our greed is immodest, egocentric, unjust and we harm ourselves.
Anyone who crushes poor people makes fun of their Maker. But anyone who is kind to those in need honors God.Proverbs 14:31
We desperately need help and an intentional change! We all have weaknesses and failures. In Jesus we get forgiveness, peace and new orientation. This help creates change and enables me to see my needy neighbor and to provide true help.
Do you know the wonderful experience of helping someone else?
