Japan Needs Us

Japan is suffering.  And the whole world is also suffering.  One disaster after another.  Earthquake, tsunami, nuclear radiation.  What would be next?  Hunger?  Sickness?  More death?  This is a reminder that we need to remain united as a family.  Haiti was another reminder of how important it is to serve each other.  Chile was yet another reminder.  Jesus commanded us to reach out and serve these people.  There are political revolutions in other countries.  The price of gas is too high.  But the crisis that Japanese people are currently suffering and others in the world surpasses any other.  Let us remain focus on what we are supposed to do. Let us not forget about Japan.

About Noel

I am a person who has realized that the teachings of Jesus are centralized in the genuine care and service of others. I have evolved from fundamentalism to a moderate spiritual approach. I am a reflecting person who has grown to not fear doubt but to embrace it as a means to growth and increasing closeness to God. View all posts by Noel

    Be very careful with that sentiment and always make sure you don’t place the material – even unto death – the spiritual. The Japanese are not like us and feel differently about what we call charity.

    We do not want to risk shaming them in their own eyes or having them think they owe us a blood debt for our aid.

    On the other hand I think this is a great post. After encountering a number of legalists who think God visited the Japanese with deserved punishment it is good to find someone focussing on the gospel – and extending a hand to neighbours who might even be different to us.
