A Thanksgiving Perspective
Happy Thanksgiving Day!
I came across this on another blog, Treasured Pearls. I hope the original author doesn’t mind me re-posting this. It just seems to fit so perfectly with my passion for children with no families, and my desire to bring more children into our family. Just ponder these comments.
I am surrounded by food and feasts beyond compare,
143 million children are wondering if there will be enough to eat.
I am surrounded by friends and family,
143 million children are taken care of by government-paid workers or worse yet, no one
143 million children are fighting to survive another day on the streets.
143 million children are walking to the nearest water pond/lake/river to get water for the day.
143 million children drink dirty water filled with parasites, diseases, and germs.
143 million children are loved by God.
I am surrounded by 224 million "Christians" in the US (Adherents.com)
143 million children are "the least of these."
Matt 25: 32,40 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. ... The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
