Quick Overview

The statistics are overwhelming and disturbing. Disasters strike randomly and with increasing frequency. The images of starving children, wounded civilians caught in the crosshairs of conflict, and violence on our streets and in our schools fill our homes in news broadcasts every evening. Unfortunately, this can lead to information overload and compassion fatigue. What’s a Christian to do? 

As Christ’s followers, we can find His footprints beside hospital beds, in poverty-blighted ghettos, in the crowded slums of great cities, or wherever human hearts are in need of hope and sympathy. We can feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and comfort the suffering. We can minister to the discouraged and inspire hope in the hopeless. 

We can make caring a habit and should never, ever underestimate what one person can accomplish. Most important of all, we can choose to engage with a hurting world because Jesus has shown us that caring is not a spectator sport!
