It’s so easy to be joyful and thankful when there is absolutely nothing that you need or long for. When you have a incredibly comfortable bed, more clothes than any normal human being should have, when your car runs and you never wonder where your next meal will come from, it’s easy to rejoice.
I came home the other night and found this jar on the counter. It’s so simple but yet commanded my attention. When you see the news and hear the testimonies of those who experienced the tragedy in Haiti, everything is brought back into perspective. There are so many thousands of people hurting right now in our world. Everywhere. People are in need of hope and a Savior but people are also in need of food and shelter and medical attention. I challenge you today to keep those who are hurting on your mind…. constantly. Constantly lift them up in prayer but also rejoice that we serve a God that is bigger than any natural disaster.
