The way I look at life, God puts people in our paths for a reason. So whoever we encounter —whether in person, in print or online —is a means of drawing us closer to our Maker.
The news is a prime example: The disaster in Japan is the stuff of heartache, a sure sign that we’re being called to do something.
Most of us send up prayers when we hear of a disaster like this. But we must admit that the catastrophe will linger in the lives of those affected much longer than they’ll stay in our hearts. This could be a sign that we need to go far deeper into prayer than we often do when the news is bad. Here are some ways to accomplish this:
And of course, ask God what else He wants you to do to help. Contribute what you can right now. And then contribute again, as soon as you can.
