Powerful Post

Please take a moment to go here-- and read this post by Adeye Salem on the "No Greater Joy" blog.

This is a powerful, powerful post about the world's waiting children who all too often are forgotten.  We remember and pay tribute to the celebrities of the world, but what about God's children??  Do we think of them before we lay our heads down at night?  Do we cry when they perish??  Do many of us even know about the plight of the world's orphans??

We are blessed to live in a very privileged society-- one that values money, position and prestige above much else.  We need to get our priorities in check. 

Too often people exclaim  "But what can I do???"  We ALL can do something! 

Andrea Roberts, who started Reece's Rainbow, said today:

  "You can't save them all"....well by God, that may be true but we have to TRY!? Got money? GIVE. Got Jesus? PRAY. Got Facebook? SHARE. Got heart? ADOPT. DO SOMETHING."

Amen to that.

So please, read the post I linked to above.  Consider, really really consider, what YOU can do. 

Proverbs 24:12 tells us that "Once our eyes are opened we cannot pretend we do not know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls knows we know and holds us responsible to act."
