STOP AND THINK – You can’t serve, love, or care for others without connecting. (Mike Lee, American pastor)

It’s easy to “care about” the poor or the suffering in some far country. But that’s not really caring, although we might pray for and give financially to support such unfortunate people. To really help and have an impact, however, we need to have a closer contact. We must work at connecting with some who are quite near us so we can offer genuine love and care.

The righteous care about justice for the poor (Proverbs 29:7).
