This picture will always haunt me of a mother looking for work in the oil patch and having to live in her car with her little baby. She is not poor or destitute, but she needs a place to stay and someone to help with the care of the child while she works. Yet many do not think that is the churches job.
Micah 6 says, ”
8 He hath showed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth God require of thee, but to do justly, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with thy God?
We might also add to walk humbly with our fellow human beings in need and difficulty. If the love of Christ will jot compel us I guess I am at a loss as to what will. Please read the following link and remember that this service provided by the Pastor and the church has been brought to an end by an amalgamation of people that really don’t know what to do, and my guess is, don’t care. There are a lot of rules out there and seemingly very few answers.
