Something to Think About...

I've been following the Compassion Bloggers on their trip to Equador.

I love what Compassion International does for communities, for people.

So, Ann Voskamp at A Holy Experience has been making me cry.

As I was sniffing through her post, I read this:

Don’t we all need a reference letter from the poor when we meet Christ?

...and my world stopped in space and time for a moment. 

What if Jesus asks for a letter of reference from the poor when I meet Him face to face?

Could I present one to Him?

Could you get a letter - a personal reference?  Not from the "masses" that you've helped because of your good ideas, but from flesh and blood people who are grateful that you care.

Could you get one from...

  • the poor
  • the sick
  • the weak
  • the vulnerable
  • the old
  • the unborn
  • the incarcerated
  • the orphan
  • the hopeless
  • the lost
  • the dying

Sobering question, isn't it?

Blessings to you,

There are a couple of categories I know I couldn't get a single reference from. Good thing I am still a work in progress.
