There is a question that has been haunting me for several weeks. Why? Why was I born into privilege? Why is there such poverty that I have never seen. But another good question is "What?" What am I doing to serve God with the time and resources He has given me?
Am I chasing things of this world?
“Do not store up for yourselves treasure on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21
Every time I go shopping God speaks this verse in my heart. Do I need more stuff that doesn’t matter? NO. What will make an eternal difference?
Wanting to do more for God, to be His hands and feet, to serve others are all reasons God has led Daniel and I to adopt. I can’t adopt all the orphans in the world, but God tells us to start with one.
We should take each opportunity God gives us to help others.
