Someone help me understand, why? Why would/should we have thousands of dollars sitting in the bank, while children starve? So, we can have Financial Peace? Well, isn't that a crock? I want my peace to come from knowing that not only does my Redeemer live, but He supplies all my need according to his riches and glory. I want to depend on Him! I long to live in a way that says, "Show up, Jesus, or the ship is going to sink!" Not irresponsibly, not because of poor choices, but because we're following so hard after the heart of God. The closer we walk with Jesus, the more our lives look like his, the more I see it. It's not about our "best life, now." It's about laying down our lives and coming to life in Christ, so that one day we will live our best life in eternity. When you fall in love with Jesus, you'll not be able to hoard away all your money, while someone else's child starves, while an orphan doesn't have a family, while a man sleeps under a bridge. Your compassion will move you to act on behalf of the least of these. Trust God and watch as he shows up and gets all the Glory in your life. Pray, Adopt, Advocate, Support...Do Something!
