A recent read of Elizabeth Esther's blog led me to a post that reminded me of a similar struggle I encountered over a year ago after the earthquake in Haiti. I'm providing links to both because it's important to keep these issues on our hearts, minds, and tongues. Please read both before commenting.
We cannot take for granted what we have.
We need to ask, Why?
We must wonder, Now what?
What do we do with the riches we have but do not deserve? (ie: EVERYTHING)
How can we love our brothers and sisters who are in poverty?
What should we do?
And why do we ever stop the conversation?
