Perhaps one of the great challenges believers have always faced is in reconciling faith and works. The tension is there, even in the Scriptures. We in the 21st century use words like social justice, equity, charity, whatever the words, the concerns are the same. Can we, in the name of Jesus, provide assistance to those who have less than we do? Can we truly call ourselves friends of Jesus and live in affluence while not sparing a thought for those less fortunate?
It is estimated that 5000 children die daily from water borne diseases, this is absolutely scandalous. Yet the solution is simple, clean water and proper sanitation. But who will provide it? Do we wait for third world governments to get their act together, and let the children keep dying or do we choose to lend a hand, and offer a cup of water, in Jesus’s name.
