Scripture: Matthew 25: 44-45

A major theme of Les Misérables is poverty and the injustices that lead to it. As Christians, we have a calling to serve the poor, seek the lost, bind up wounds, release captives, offer healing, announce forgiveness, visit the prisoner, feed the hunger and provide a drink for the thirsty, proclaiming and demonstrating "the kingdom" Jesus preached and inaugurated. Throughout the story of Fantine, Victor Hugo sheds a bright spotlight on the sufferings of the poor, Fantine's story raises questions about what is right and wrong, and how we respond. What is our role in combating poverty?
