I often think we live in a bubble, worried about our needs and the latest trends, but never realizing the reality beyond that. While we worry that our phones or electronics are last year’s model, there are people who haven’t had a bite to eat all day (or perhaps for several days). Let’s challenge ourselves to create awareness for the needs of our brothers and sisters in need, be informed, get involved, and keep them in our prayers. As the bible says “it is better to give, than to receive”.
I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. (1 Timothy 2:1 NLT)
