We have seen over the last couple of months the devastation and destruction in many areas of our world. I am sure we can pull together some biblical references for all of this but what I want mostly is to look at our responsibility toward a suffering world. As followers of Christ we cannot eliminate suffering but we can definitely reach out and give a helping hand. We can give a "cup of cold water" in the name of Christ. There are several ways we can help: actually be on the ground and do something; give money or items that are useful and pray and support those who are helping. As a follower of Christ we cannot neglect those around us. And we cannot ignore it. I do not think a true follower will.
"And the King will answer them, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these my brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." ( Matthew 25:40)
