I’ve seen these before.
Poor African children, starved, needy, sickly. This is probably not the first time you have seen such videos, and it probably won’t be the last. What should you be doing?
Ignore them until you are serious about doing something for the people you see. Ignore them until you are willing to pay a price to change the truth placed before your eyes. Ignore them until you are willing to play a part in their suffering, and play a role in their salvation. Until or unless you are willing to start living your life in a way that matters all the way to Africa, ignore them…
Lest your hearts get numbed to their plight.
We see this imbalance and we go “Man.. that’s not right, that’s not fair.” But all too often that’s all we do… because for us to do any more is actually going to cost us something.
Christianity is going to cost you something. It is not the easier way out of life, it is the better way; in fact, it is the only way. Let me amend what I said earlier on – Christianity will cost you everything.
How cheap is your faith?
Perhaps the only fair thing to say, is that when we forsake the lives of others, we actually forsake our own.
