I wanted to share this quick illustration of the three different components of the fight against human trafficking. This word-picture could be applied to many social justice issues, and I heard it first from our friends over at ZOE Children’s Homes. Call me crazy, but I just do better with simple analogies I can understand. . .
With that said, I realize that we can’t be passionate about every social justice issue that plagues our world today. Let’s be honest, there are more really-massive global problems than our hearts or minds could count. Personally, though, I have found that I typically care about and get involved with the injustices that are either A} Right in my face, B} that God stirs a deep compassion for, or C} that I’ve personally had deep connection with.
How about you? Which heartbreaking issue is greatest on your radar right now? AIDS, orphans, foster-kids, single-moms, abused women, special needs kids, poverty, ___________________ ?
