Please help me to understand about hungry children. Yes, I know this world You created for us is broken. We broke it. I get that. And I know that You are the God of justice as surely as You are the God of mercy.
If I were You, I could do that.
And if I were You, I would understand why it hasn’t been done.
So okay, God, I trust You. Your ways are better than my ways.
Meanwhile, thank You for our Compassion child, Samuel. Thank You for Compassion International, and their focus on breaking the cycle of poverty by caring for children. Thank You for fewer people living in absolute poverty today than did 30 years ago.
I study the poverty numbers, and I see two things.
First, The reduction of people living in extreme poverty tells me that programs like those offered by Compassion International are working. In 1990, 43.1% of the developing world lived in absolute poverty. In 2008, 22.4% lived at that precarious level of subsistence.
The Lord has made everything for its own purpose,Even the wicked for the day of evil.Proverbs 16:4 (NASB)
