I’ve just read about the massive 7.9 earthquake in Nepal. The destruction & lives lost won’t be fully assessed for several weeks, but so far, more than 970 people have died. Now, it’s a race against the clock to unbury & rescue probably thousands more before time runs out for them. There are huge efforts being made to rush aid, support and life to this country, even though there’s concern that the airport in Kathmandu may also be damaged from the quake.
When I watch Jesus in the Gospels, I’ve never seen Him run away from nor ignore pain, suffering and hardship. Rather, when I look at Jesus in the Gospels, He brought life, freedom, redemption, healing, restoration and much more wherever He went. Rather than running from & ignoring pain, suffering, loss and hardship, at minimum, let’s run with concern and prayer to this desperately needy plight in Nepal. I don’t think Jesus suffered from charity fatigue #selah
