A call for all to unite
There are so many organizations that truly do good for those in need. There are to many for me to count. So why must there be so many individual organizations? We are in the year 2006. Times have changed and we need to also. Regardless of our own personal interests or why we choose to the ones we give to, why can there not be one central relief organization with multiple sub affiliates? It would seem to make sense that the bigger the organization is the more of an impact they could have around the world, including the U.S.A. There would be better organization of distribution by knowing who is doing what. The organization would be better at negotiating pricing for goods that are needed. There would be many other benefits as well. We all need to put our own differences aside and come together for the greater good of all. We do not have to agree on everything, that is the part where we put our differences aside. With all the money that God has provided for us there should not be all this starving and homeless around the world in this day and time. I realize that each organization is doing a wealth of good but we still have issues around the world today as far as humanitarian needs not being met. Again I ask why can't there be a uniting of efforts between all the organizations to better funnel the resources being given for these purposes. It is only the opinion of one but why must there be thousands of separate organizations trying to, ultimately , do the same thing? Is it because they have a personal agenda that they need to move away from and look to Jesus for there uniting. Jesus tells us to visit the sick, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, take care of the widows and orphans. We can do this with Gods help and become one under Him our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Who will stand and bring them together rather than segregate. Who will stand for the greater cause and not of his own understanding. Who?
And the King shall answer and
say unto them, Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto
one of the least of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me.
Then shall they also answer
him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee
a hunger, or athirst, or a stranger, or
naked, or sick, or in prison, and did
not minister unto thee?
Then shall he answer them, saying,
Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch
as ye did it not to one of the least
of these, ye did it not to me.
And these shall go away into
everlasting punishment: but the
righteous into life eternal.
Therefore if thine enemy
hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him
drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap
coals of fire on his head.
Be not overcome of evil, but
overcome evil with good.
