The Poverty Wheel

The Poverty Wheel


Wess Stafford, in his book Too Small to Ignore, presents the best way of understanding it that I’ve found: the poverty wheel. In the center of the wheel, the hub, there is absolute poverty. The outer rim represents enough. The opposite of poverty isn’t wealth – it’s enough. Enough food to live, enough shelter to remain safe and dry, enough opportunity to become a self-sustaining member of society, enough dignity to be the person God created you to be. The six spokes of the wheel represent the various areas of life that must be intact for “enough” to occur. The spokes are economic, educational, health, environmental, social, and spiritual. As with an actual wheel, each spoke is necessary for the stability of the whole. When one spoke is weak, it has an impact on all the others.
