We often speak about the hunger and need in the world as though it is someone else’s problem. We often speak about the lack of God in our society as though it too is someone else’s problem. Not true. All of the knowledge in the world is useless without action

If you have the materials to start a fire and know how to start a fire but don’t start a fire you will still freeze to death in the cold and so will those for whom you are responsible. Knowledge of what needs to be done and how to do it is the first step. The belief that it needs to be done is the second step. Faith that you can do it by the grace of God is the third step. Stepping out in that faith is the fourth step and the final proof of your faithfulness.

Help the hungry and the needy, the widows and the orphans for that is the least you can do. Speak out for Jesus, pray for your family and neighbors for that is the least you can do. Read the Word, study the Word and take action. Be a fire starter.
