The statistics are overwhelming and disturbing. Disasters strike randomly and with increasing frequency. The images of starving children; wounded civilians caught in the crosshairs of conflict; and violence on our streets and in our schools fill our homes in news broadcasts every evening. Unfortunately; this can lead to information overload and compassion fatigue. What’s a Christian to do? As Christ’s followers; we can find His footprints beside hospital beds; in poverty-blighted ghettos; in the crowded slums of great cities; or wherever human hearts are in need of hope and sympathy. We can feed the hungry; clothe the naked; and comfort the suffering. We can minister to the discouraged and inspire hope in the hopeless. We can make caring a habit and should never; ever underestimate what one person can accomplish. Most important of all; we can choose to engage with a hurting world because Jesus has shown us that caring is not a spectator sport!
