It isn’t optional

I’m not saying that believer should adopt. It wouldn’t be even possible…but EVERY believer should champion the idea that MORE believers SHOULD than are currently, as well as holding each other accountable to the reasons they are or are not pursuing it when such a staggering but attainable need exists. And that no matter how one chooses to grow their family that tending to the cause of the Fatherless (in the womb and for decades after birth) isn’t optional.

.

I’m not saying that every believer should live and shop and make a life in under resourced neighborhoods (the areas of the city people don’t want to live or don’t feel safe in). But EVERY believer should champion the idea that MORE believers SHOULD take their lives and families and invest in the kingdom work that is taking place there as well as advocate for justice in areas where systemic injustice has ruled for far too long. That knowing where and speaking up against oppression in our cities isn’t optional.

.

I’m not saying that every believer should be for or against a certain health plan. There are many facets that are involved that impact many people… but EVERY believer should champion the idea that MORE believers SHOULD be concerned about the health and care of the poor and marginalized, and be knowledgeable about how health care impacts abortion rates and those in poverty. We should be a people who know biblically our own care is directly related to the care we champion for the poor. Taking care of the sick and disabled isn’t optional.

.

I’m not saying that every believer should send their kids to public school. It wouldn’t be feasible…. but EVERY believer should champion the idea that MORE believers SHOULD than are currently as well as holding each other accountable to the reasons they are or are not pursuing the betterment of education equality when such a sobering but fixable need exists. And no matter what education choice a believing family makes, that tending to the plight of the poor and oppressed isn’t optional.

.

IF you are a believer who has chosen the latter in each situation then please know that championing those who are choosing the road less traveled means they need your encouragement, your resources, your support, your advocacy, your “YES!! EXACTLY, What can we do to help?” when they report from where they are….. not a list of reasons why you don’t feel called to join them or why they shouldn’t sound so judgmental to those who aren’t doing exactly what they are doing. You praying and encouraging and cheering means more than you could possibly know!!
