Money Frosting and Deeper Greed

“Giving handouts creates more problems than it solves,” says life-long missionary Nate Saint in his recent article on rich Westerners doing third-world missions, “Projecting Poverty Where It Doesn’t Exist.”

He explains several new problems handouts create:

  • Handouts create a false sense of need for the American way of life.
  • Handouts create a desire to see one’s self as needy in order to get free stuff.
  • Handouts hurt entire communities by provoking greed, money-lust, and discontentedness.

Read the whole article to see how Saint explains each with decades of life experience.
