After having a long conversation last night with a dear friend about some of the things God has recently placed on our hearts, I woke up and headed to the grocery store and after checking a text messaged, went ahead and got on Facebook too. This was the first thing that popped up on my feed:
And I cried. There in the middle of that grocery store. Because it’s exactly what I spent yesterday evening pouring my heart out about. And because there I was in the middle of a grocery store with 10 different choices of sliced bread, looking into the faces of poverty. Why do we so easily forget those faces? Why do we make plans to upgrade what would already be considered by most of the world as extravagance when the “least of these” are dying of preventable illness and hunger? How do we so easily forget that Jesus told us himself that what we do to the least of these, we do to Him? It’s time to make a change. It’s time to drown out all the voices that say “you deserve it!” and “super size it” and “more is better!” and beg and plead with the Lord to help us hear His voice above all others.
It IS time.
Until the next blog…be blessed.
