Topic: Compassion International
Okay, I know what I'm about to say may seem like a little thing to you, but it's big to me ! Blogging is supposed to be an extension of your life, and to me that is exactly true. I blog about things that important to me. And, I try not to allow things to be important to me if they are not important to God. I want everything that I do to be a ministry - from homeshooling, to Good News Mission and BCM International, to my homeschool reviews, to my family, to Compassion International. It's all a ministry and it's all connected and entwined. That's why it is so hard for me to pick a Topic for each one of my blog entries. Sometimes just one topic isn't enough. I want my post to cover three or four topics.
This post is no different. Although this is a clip put out by Compassion International, it's theme, Poverty, covers so many other areas of my life. Sarah and I work with folks that are in poverty every day. We see it at home through our ministry and we see it abroad through BCM International and Compassion International. So, this clip is much more than a Compassion International clip to me. It covers so much of who I am and what my family believes in and stands for.
This short movie talks about being a Hero to others by sponsoring a Compassion child in another country. Although I would love it if you would get involved with Compassion, I would love it even more if you just got involved! Be a hero where you are and get involved fighting poverty. Volunteer with your local mission. Help in your area soup kitchen. Visit someone in need. You don't have to give to BCM or Compassion or Good News Mission...just give! Give of your time and money to the organization of your choice, but just do it. Don't turn a blind eye to those in need anymore. Step out of you comfort zone - financially and time wise. Do it in Jesus name!
Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
