What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
-James 2:14-17 (NIV)
I can believe in a cause or that God will do something about a hard situation, but am I willing to get my own hands dirty in the situation?
There are incredibly simple practical ways we can alter our lifestyles to help alleviate hunger, poverty, and disease in our own communities and far away. Are we willing to do something about it, or do we just want to “raise awareness”?
Feel free to disagree. Do you think raising awareness is just a cop out?
