Lovingkindness

This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another.
Zechariah 7:9


A girl named Nyibol was only 10 when Arab raiders abducted her and a number of other women and children in her villiage.

The females were gang-raped repeatedly. Nyibol was forced to watch as a woman and boy were decapitated and their heads hung in a tree. By the grace of God, Nyibol was rescued and set free from a nightmarish decade in captivity.

This time the story had a happy ending, but for thousands of others in violent, anti-Christian Sudan, the ending is not as joyous. Countless will starve to death and endure the hardships of slavery unless the Church takes to heart its God-ordained role to be a source of help to a dying world.

Micah 6:8 admonishes: “And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” We are to show mercy to those in need—those who are starving at the hands of an oppressive regime.

It is the role of the Church to care for the needy. In their pain, they cry out for help. I believe God’s people will reach out to answer their cries on His behalf when no one else will.
