Reflection 7.17.17

The same love that motivates us to preach the gospel and meet some basic needs should also motivate us toward getting behind the needs to their causes…. The questions don’t stop with the structures of society that make victims out of people. The questions continue right down into our lives, into our own homes, into the ways that we personally participate in and benefit from the way the structures are set up. It is painful because we might discover that we are guilty of being a part of an unjust system.
