Poverty is one of the big injustices of the world. And with the current pandemic, global poverty is rising for the first time in decades. The World Bank predicts that the COVID-19 pandemic could push an additional 88 million to 115 million people into extreme poverty this year alone.

So how do we stay focused on pursuing justice when injustice feels too overwhelming, too impossible to overcome? We go to our ultimate source of truth—the Bible.
Here are six important reminders from the Bible about pursuing justice:
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us all, and it has not spared the children we serve. Together, we can pursue justice for children living in poverty—defending the weak and upholding the cause of the poor during this time of uncertainty and beyond.
Sponsoring a child is a powerful way to pursue justice for children living in poverty. When you become a sponsor, you’ll invest into the life of a child, helping them permanently break the cycle of generational poverty in their own families, communities, and nations. You’ll help show a child the love of Jesus, and that there is real freedom from the injustices of the world in Him.
Restore a Generation
Two more years of school could lift 60 million out of poverty. Give today and restore a generation.
