Sad but True

I encountered this in a blog recently, and first it made me laugh at how I do whine about relatively insignificant things, like how drivers pull in right front of me and drive really slow. Then it made me feel bad in a good way about how much more I still need to grow in my commitment to practical concern about the much greater suffering of others.  What’s your reaction?

  1. agreed with everything you said… but there are real problems in the 1st world too. i’d like to see the venn diagram for, say, relational brokenness, self-sabotage, emotional abuse.

    • I agree, Evelyn. So does Mother Teresa: “We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.”

    • Thanks for the reminder, Evelyn. I’m on the lookout to get more involved with direct help, but sometimes international social work seems very distant and hard to access.
