So much is going on in the world right now.
ISIS is executing Christians in Iraq
War between Israel and Hamas
Civilian Airplane shot down in the Ukraine.
And even in our own country..in our own home towns.
There are Homeless
There is violence
There is bullying.
So much Evil
You can't blame someone for
Doubting God's Existence in the face of all this.
It makes the most faithful of us ask questions and feel doubt.
There is a new(ish) song out by Matthew West
Called "Do Something"
In this song he cries out to God,
"Why don't you do something?!!"
And God responds, "I did."
"I created you."
We are created to love and care for one another.
But when we look around
the amount of evil is overwhelming.
What can I do?
What can I do that will actually make a difference?
I can't change ISIS
I can't stop a war
I can't even stop the violence I see in my own home town.
And this reminds me of a story
A parable perhaps.
It's called: The Starfish Story:
