Everyone knows about the earthquake/tsunami in Japan at the end of last week. All over Twitter and Facebook were posts about praying for those people effected. This is good.

Don Miller posted on Twitter: “If anything bad happens to me, I can’t use your thoughts but I could use your prayers.” Great point. Keep on doing that. It’s critical.

But, we often stop there. What can we do? What have you done to also be an active participant in helping?
Sometimes we need to read less, and act more. This is short today because sometimes it’s not that we don’t know what to do, it’s that we think about and don’t act. Take time to act.

Matthew 25:34-46
…as you did it for the least of these, you did it for Me…

What opportunity do you have right now?

What have you missed?

What are you thinking about that you need to go do? Put down work for a minute and do it.
