So what’s our response to a crisis? Has Jesus crossed the hard, dangerous places off his list?
Yes my heart needs to remain soft. I happened upon a panel discussion and an apology last week by a well known feisty current affairs commentator . He began with loudly admitting he needed to repent. On a day when Russian military had bombed a hospital in Ukraine, he admitted …[my paraphrase]’ ‘when covering the violence in Syria, I knew many hospitals there had been mercilessly bombed or shelled, but it never touched my heart/my gut in the way todays intentional attack does. What was wrong with my empathy that I did not see the humanity and pain of the Syrian people as I now feel for the Ukrainian civilians?’
I pray that my spiritual senses are on high alert 24/7 to know what the Spirit is saying. May His will be my passion. Let's GO!!! (P.S. I've also been praying for Doors of Hope International. https://www.dohi.org/please-help-the-people-of-ukraine/)
