If you have done it to the least of these...

I heard last week that Bono spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC, but I didn't give it more than a passing thought (other than, 'hm, that's an odd choice for a speaker- would've thought that Dobson would be more likely'). Today, though, I ran across a transcript of his remarks and was very impressed. I don't know where Bono stands on issues of theology- salvation, faith, the deity of Jesus- all the things that I was taught, especially in college, are the most important in life. But he does have an amazing compassion for the poor, especially for someone as wealthy as he is. I think that as much as Jesus focused on the poor, we Christians need to have a focus more like this.
