Am I my brother's keeper?
What about those we may not know?
What about the helpless? The lost? The ones in slavery? Those being abused and used in human trafficking?
Are they our sisters?
"Love your neighbor as yourself" Jesus tells us.
Jesus is asked in Luke 10 who is our neighbor. He then tells a story about the Good Samaritan, a man who was part of an ethnic group who were despised by the ones listening. He ends his story with a question:
"Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers' hands?' And (the lawyer) said, 'The one who showed mercy toward him.' And Jesus said to him, 'Go and do the same.'" Luke 10:36-37
There is a movement beginning called Half the Sky. It addresses the issue of loving our neighbors, our neighbors nearby and our neighbors far away.
If you were in slavery, if you or your daughter were being drugged and used in the sex trade, would you not be praying for someone to rescue you?
We are someone's answer for rescue.
So often we can feel helpless when we see how big the problem is. Human trafficking is found everywhere in the world, in all 50 states and most likely in every nation. It i sa huge problem, but and individual too. Those lost in it our someone's babies. Those being used are someone's daughters.
I might not be able to save the world. You might not be able to save the world, but together we can do great things. God is in this. Have you wanted to be part of something huge? Please watch the videos below. We can do God's work. We can see change.
