1 John 3:15-17

We see it on the news broadcasts. We hear it over the radio waves. We read it on social media. We even hear and see it at church. Our world is needy. So needy, in fact, we can become overwhelmed with the sheer magnitude of it all.

Those of us privileged to call ourselves Americans are automatically among the wealthiest people on earth. Does that mean we should give away all we have and live as paupers? Not necessarily (John 12:1-8). But it does mean we should care, and pray, and give generously to those in need. We can’t help everyone, but we can help someone. How are you being socially conscious this week?
