Whose job is it, anyway?
The many many children left without a family by no fault of their own? Or taken from parents who should protect them, but instead, abuse them?
Whose "problem" is it?
Can't help them all. Can barely make a dent, a temporary scratch in the sand when you look at the expanse of the crisis, right?
If not us, then who?
If not me, then who?
Well, seriously. Let's be realistic here. Life is busy, and stressful and expensive. It is hard enough now to get my kids to school on time and to practice, church.
What could I possibly do?
Besides, even if I wanted to, it trully is too expensive, as well, right?
It is inconvenient, isn't it?
But Jesus said, "Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. " Matt 19:14
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
