My daughter has everything in the world she needs: books, more toys than she can play with, DVD’s, markers crayons and coloring books, clothes, access the healthcare and medicine, a church who loves her, friends, great grandparents and great-grandparents. She has parents who think she spun the world into existence and she has so much food that she can eat as much or as little as she wants any time of day.
Sadly, not all children have what she has. Every 3 seconds a child dies in underdeveloped parts of our world. What’s more, they are dying from completely treatable diseases. Treatable!
What’s happening in our world transcends politics and political parties. It’s about joining God on a mission to save the world, and a lot of peopl are joining in.
Our country has an embarassment of riches, and to whom much is given much is required. This November, I think our votes (and early voting has already started) is not just about who will lower our taxes or serve us. We are all stewards of one vote. We have been given a gift from God–like all gifts from God–that is intended to be used for the benefit and blessing of the world.
