I have been getting involved with I Heart Revolution, and I am so excited about this movement. I really think that it is going to be something that impacts this world in an incredible and mighty way. As I see and work with these issues, I am realizing more and more that we as Christians are supposed to have an attitude of love and generosity, and really to the point that we think is crazy or makes us uneasy. We weren't blessed with the money or the things that we have so that we could hoard those things and keep them all to ourselves. Thats not what it is about at all. I love 1 Cor 13, most people know it, but I really like where it says in verse 6 where it says' "Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth." I know that with a lot of homeless people in the states that the mentality is to just say that those people made the choices that led them to where they are, and they are just draining our society. Well I would venture to say that most people haven't gone up to a homeless person and really sat down with them to ask them their story. I would encourage everyone to do that, I think that many people will be surprised what they find out.
That goes with the rest of the world to, not just the homeless people in the States. There is so much going on all over the world that we don't see in the news, or media. There is so much injustice in this world, and it is so easy for us to get into a rut and ignore the strife of this world just so we don't have to leave the comfort of our routine lives. I encourage you to do things to make a difference in this world starting with just stepping out of your comfort zone and talking to the people that you wouldn't normally talk to, or help the person that helping them might be an inconvenience.
I thank you for reading what God is doing in us, please let us know what is going on in your lives, we love the feedback and hearing how people are doing.
I will leave you with this, If you haven't read 1 Cor 13 in a while, sit down and read it slowly and really chew on what it is saying.
