The NEED in our local communities, in our societies, in our nations and across the world is HUGE. There are so many injustices across the globe that it can seem totally overwhelming.
We can hear the many statistics about poverty, modern day slavery, human trafficking, unjust death, homelessness and many other injustices and become almost numb to it.
We can think ‘Who am I to make a difference?’ ‘What can I do?’
The truth is you actually can do EXCEEDINGLY ABOVE AND BEYOND what you think you can do!
I believe that every one of us has a desire inside to FIGHT for a CAUSE of injustice! We are designed with a desire to make a difference in the world.
It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from or what you know; it’s about where your HEART is and what you want to CHANGE. What do you want to FIGHT for? What CAUSE grabs at your HEART, tugs at your SOUL? What moves you in to ACTION?
Maybe you’ve experienced injustice yourself and as a result want to help others in similar situations. Maybe you’ve heard someone speak about a particular cause before and it’s stayed with you and resounded in your heart. For many of us, we need to seek God and see where He wants us to act, how He wants us to help.
You have the ability to help others, to change lives and to transform society. It’s about doing what you can, with what you have, in your spheres of influence. We simply need to ACT.
You don’t have to do EVERTYTHING but you can do SOMETHING. You may not be able to help EVERYONE but you can help SOMEONE.
Don’t be overwhelmed by the large numbers! You alone can’t save everyone, but collectively we can!
God was and is concerned with the LEAST, the LAST and the LOST. In scriptures we see him over and over again show His COMPASSION and LOVE to the vulnerable, to the weak, to the marginalised and broken.
SO WHATS YOUR CAUSE GOING TO BE? HOW ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
As God is just and loving, so we are called to DO JUSTICE and LIVE in LOVE.
