Favorite things: time at home with my husband…
Often I meet people who are really unsure of what they can do to make a difference in this world.
Yesterday the invisible children campaign sent social media into meltdown over Kony and child soldiers in Uganda.
I know people who work for invisible children and therefore trust the work of the organization, however I was confounded how many of my friends jumped on the bandwagon without truly knowing what they were promoting.
Had they researched the organization?
Had they done anything else than just forward a link?
Had they actually signed the petition, ordered the pack and written to their politicians?
It astounded me how many people were willing to plaster their Facebook with Kony paraphernalia yet weren’t willing to do due diligence to what they were promoting.
“It’s also like a man going off on an extended trip. He called his servants together and delegated responsibilities. To one he gave five thousand dollars, to another two thousand, to a third one thousand, depending on their abilities. Then he left. Right off, the first servant went to work and doubled his master’s investment. The second did the same. But the man with the single thousand dug a hole and carefully buried his master’s money. (Matthew 25:14-18 MSG)
What is in your hand?
What talent/passion/gift have you been given?
Don’t follow this Lenten season what everyone else makes popular…find what the master has given you specifically and grow it.
That’s why Kony didn’t get a mention on my Facebook and the Khlong Toey football team did.
I’ve worked with them, I know them, I standby their work and would promote them with my life as talents.
Find something you can vouch for and then go for it…injustice is on every corner of our planet. Allow the Kony phenomenon to propel you towards your own revolution.
