Franklin Graham is on Fox News right now and he has a lot of good stuff to say.
"If all the churches of the south would take in 10 families for three months, it would put a huge dent in this problem. It’s an opportunity for the Church to step up."
That’s what I was thinking about when I was mowing lawn tonight. All the focus of the relief efforts is around the government. And, for the most part, rightly so. The government needs to help. But where’s the church in all this? If the church were what it’s supposed to be, they would be a major player in this whole mess as well. And I’m not talking about "churchy" organizations like the Red Cross…but THE CHURCH.
Maybe a lot is going on that the media isn’t covering…but to offer a relevant message of God’s love to people, we need to be more active putting legs to that message. I’m not great at this myself…so, let’s pray about it together.
