Waiting for God or dying becaus God’s people won’t move.

There is a war going on. When my daughter had peritonitis, we asked for help. Some were ready. Others were busy singing, dancing and building buildings. Each time we start a project, I wonder if the funds we spend are at the expense of someone dying. It is unfortunate to be in a position where my daily bread is excessive while others around have nothing to eat.

Working with banks is so difficult. The fees to send money are often as high as going there ourselves.


We are finding that there is a network of people who fund themselves helping others. So often the fees for running ministries are so high that less than 20 cents of a dollar donated makes it to the right place and then it is often consumed by those there to help the poor. God help us. The world is dying and starving and we sing and dance and ignore the rest of the world.

If it were my daughter dying of a busted gut, I would not be so easy to say, “God’s mercy will care for the dying and starving,” especially when He gave us the power and authority to do something.

I am overwhelmed by yawns and inactivity. It is as if people really believe they will not be called to account for what they are doing.

When we hurt, we cry out for help. When we have, we plug our ears.

When you are in need, you pray that others will give. When you have excess, you pray the poor will go away and leave you alone. People are strange because the folks who find themselves in trouble, look for those that can help them out of their pain and insist on the least amount of sacrifice and payment. We are and will always remain poor. When we have, we rub elbows that have more, not less. Love is a choice and love requires us to look for those that are in need and then meet those needs.

I find it amusing to sit with those in need and read the Bible. People often see Jesus and Christianity as a way to encourage others to give and it is rare if it happens at all when those who have, read the same book, attend the same church and end up giving.

Perhaps we should go through our lives and ask God what is important, while inviting in the Lazarus at our gate. We often lament that they, them, have too much and should give but will not invi…See More
