Today is #InternationalWidowsDay . Please pray for all of the women who've been widowed by terrorism or war. Christian Aid Mission assists several native ministries in the Middle East that are providing widows in refugee camps with food, water, blankets, shoes, clothing, diapers, etc. www.defeatdarkness.org
In our fallen, human state, we live in such disunity with one another. But we still sing songs and write poems about peace on earth. Because isn't that the ultimate goal. . . despite the prejudice we see every day around the world, and the prejudice we struggle with in our own hearts? Deep down, don't we all want the same thing?
As the suffering in the Middle East painfully drags on, it can be tempting to turn away. No one wants to dwell on such hardship and misery. But God forbid that you and I, as Christians, would turn away.
