Need, Faith, Action

Why should I care?

It is the question answered by Moses, David, Esther and Nehemiah. They each saw a need and did something. Moses saw Jewish slaves groaning in the brick yard. David heard Goliath's roars and stepped up with his slingshot and stones. Esther risked the king's wrath to plead the cause of her people. Nehemiah volunteered for the construction crew to rebuild Jerusalem. And the line of men and women who step up to do something, who care when there is need is as long as time.

In each story, there is huge need, there is great faith, and there is a touched heart that responds in action. That's what it takes to make a difference in our world - willing hands and feet propelled by a caring heart!
