The Preserved and Living Word of God

AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE - A few years back, three questions came from different people in the span of a month. Question number 1: Had you been a German Christian during World War II, would you have taken a stand against Hitler? Question number 2: Had you lived in the South during the civil rights conflict, would you have taken a stand against racism? And question number 3: When your grandchildren discover you lived during a day in which 1.75 billion people were poor and 1 billion were hungry, how will they judge your response?

A few years back, three questions came from different people in the span of a month. Question number 1: Had you been a German Christian during World War II, would you have taken a stand against Hitler? Question number 2: Had you lived in the South during the civil rights conflict, would you have taken a stand against racism? And question number 3: When your grandchildren discover you lived during a day in which 1.75 billion people were poor and 1 billion were hungry, how will they judge your response?

I did not mind the first two questions. Those choices were not mine. But the third question has kept me awake at night. We are given an opportunity to make a big difference during a difficult time. We are created by a God to do great works. He invites us to outlive our lives, not just in heaven but here on earth.
