Clearly we can’t even get food to some countries, but even in first world countries- having a cell phone doesn’t mean you’re “good.” Still a lot of people going hungry. Just feel it’s callous to be so unaware. I haven’t done much but have worked at a Christian food pantry several times- eye opening experience. Also, to just dismiss the need as something others can do and spend time and effort investing in those who can further promote your agenda- is wrong- regardless of what group is doing it.
Sometimes on M9nday mornings I help my local church and some needy folks by pushing a wheelbarrow with their donated food to their car. I do a lot of watching, a bit of silent praying, and an occasional verbal blessing. I'm just a nobody pushing a wheelbarrow sometimes praying for what looks like a single mom with little kids, old, and mentally and physically challenged folks. This is helping me love people who are very different from me. Maybe someday I'll hear their stories and pray, rejoice or cry. My bad is that I know that if I never hear them, then I may never feel the Spirit move me to act and or pray.
Look to Jesus not The Ministry! Hebrews 12:2.
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
