A thought…

The following is from “When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor and Yourself”.

“North American Christians are simply not doing enough. We are the richest people ever to walk the face of the earth. Period. Yet, most of us live as though there is nothing terribly wrong in the world. We attend our kids’ soccer games, pursue our careers, and take beach vacations while 40 percent of the world’s inhabitants struggle just to eat every day. And in our own backyards, the homeless, those residing in ghettos, and a wave of immigrants live in a world outside the economic and social mainstream of North America. We do not necessarily need to feel guilty about our wealth. But we do need to get up every morning with a deep sense that something is terribly wrong with the world and yearn to do something about it. There is simply not enough yearning and striving going on.”

  1. Hi there! This blog post could not be written any better! Reading through this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He always kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send this information to him. Pretty sure he will have a great read. Thank you for sharing!
