(from asbo Jesus)
This week Tearfund are trying to mobilise local churches into a global week of prayer for poverty.
There are 2.2 million children in the world today. One million of these (EVERY SECOND CHILD!) are living in poverty.
The statistics are head wrecking and unfortunately often mind-numbing. However in the gospel I read we aren't left with much of an option but to do something. To pray and then be ready to be the answer to our prayers.
I've been really challenged by Matthew 23 where we are basically told how God will decide who spends eternity with him. I don't need to blog about it because my brother has just done it beautifully. Check out davymull. Brilliant!
