At least three times a day we stop to feed our bodies. We feel hunger so we open the fridge or stop by a convenience store and are immediately satisfied. Many of us scrape left-over food into a garbage can night after night.
Did you know women with children desperate for nutrition in the horn of Africa, are walking for a couple of weeks to reach refugee camps only to find that they are already overflowing?...like hundreds of thousands overflowing.
We are thirsty so we turn on a faucet inside of our house and fill up a glass with clean drinking water...anytime we want.
Did you know that there are people who take plastic jugs to fill with muddy water from ditches and take it back to their thirsty children?
When our children are young we are able to get them vaccines with sanitary needles at little to no cost. When they become sick or injured medical care and competent doctors are are only a car or ambulance ride away.
Did you know a mother is walking her starving children to a refugee camp right now? When she arrives, she may unwrap the baby on her back to find that it has died without her knowing it. Beautiful African people are dying today from measles, malaria, cholera....diseases we don't even worry about.
What will you do? Will you pray? Will you pray with sincere anguish for the plight of these people? Will you give generously?
