None of us need to be told that our world is overwhelmed with human need and desperation. As Christians we rightly want to do something about that, but what can we do? The world does not have enough armies to overthrow all the oppressors, and even if it did, the world does not possess enough righteousness to ensure that justice would then be done.
So, what can we do? Christians of good faith will disagree about “macro solutions” but there is one “micro solution” we can all agree on and take part in. We can love our neighbor, and show kindness and mercy to someone in need.
In this week’s message we will learn how King David, the truly flawed man after God’s own heart, once elevated the life of a man who had been forgotten. In addition to that, we will see how even for a king, doing good is more complicated than we might think.
So join us in song and prayer, and then listen to this week’s message; and as you do ask God if there is someone with whom you can share the love of Christ.
