If Only...No Orphans!

My friend, Hedy Lee, who's also an adoptive mommy posted this quote on her Facebook:

Quote from Steven Curtis Chapman, August 2008
"If only 7 percent of the 2 billion Christians in the world would care for a single orphan in distress, there would effectively be no more orphans. If everybody would be willing to simply do something to care for one of these precious treasures, I think we would be amazed by just how much we could change the world. We can each do something, whether it is donating, adopting, fostering, mentoring, visiting orphans or supporting families that have taken in orphans. You can change the world for an orphan."

Pretty powerful.

I also just read this on my friend, John Waidley's Facebook:
"Men are saying that Jesus Christ came as a social reformer. Nonsense! We are social reformers; Jesus came to alter us, and we try to shirk our responsibility by putting our work on Him. Jesus alters us ...to begin to work where we live..." [Chambers]

Who says Facebook isn't awesome? Convicting for me today, too.
