What is the definition of poverty?

According to the United Nations, extreme poverty is defined as:

a) The extreme shortage of basic human needs
b) The lack of adequate water, food and shelter
c) Not having enough money to provide basic necessities
d) Living on less than $1 per day

Answer: D

One in five people around the world lives in extreme poverty, surviving on less than $1 per day. In addition, a child dies every three seconds from AIDS and extreme poverty. Experts agree that investing in education and creating fairer trade policies between the richest and poorest
countries of the world could lift 300 million people out of poverty by 2015.

Proverbs 11:2 - When pride comes, then comes dishonor

NIV When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom.
KJV When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
NASBWhen pride comes, then comes dishonor,
But with the humble is wisdom.

Proverbs 11:2


Self-centered pride brings disgrace to the person and dishonor to God. This theme is common in Proverbs. In contrast, the wise display humility. To be humble is to be submissive to God and to the authorities He places in your life (see Mic. 6:8).

"the humble" - A rare word, which appears in Mic. 6:8: "walk humbly with your God." This humble and teachable spirit is first of all directed toward God (cf. 15:33; 16:18, 19; 18:12; 22:4).
