As most of you know, a major earthquake devastated Haiti this past week. Thousands perished, and many more are left with limited food, water, and medical attention. My prayer for Haiti is for these conditions to be remedied quickly. I also pray more survivors are found.
The generosity inspired by this tragedy is heartwarming. Just when you think the world is a dark, lonely place, people come through with giving - either of themselves, with supplies or financially.
This is a time to pray for Haiti, not a time to curse it. A time to put the spotlight on the suffering and poverty enveloping this country. This is a time to live Christ's example - not with condemnation, but with love. And not with self-congratulatory giving, but with love.
