“My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, ‘Here’s a good seat for you,’ but say to the poor man, ‘You stand there’ or ‘Sit on the floor by my feet,‘ have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?”(James 2:1-4, NIV)
I wonder how those in Southern Nigeria– which is decidedly more “1st world” than the Northern region of Nigeria– think about those going through such pain and turmoil at the hands of terrorists. The plights of those in Northern Nigeria are many; yet, we barely hear of them in the news and on TV.
Of course, Jesus cares deeply about these people. His Word speaks of caring for the poor and needy. They are not just statistics to Him. Because of this, we cannot forget them, even almost 8 years later.
I came across this spoken word poem that was put out in 2014. I post it today because it should be just as relevant.
It seems we have forgotten the girls. But their parents have not. Their friends have not. And I pray that we can still hear their cries loud enough to do something about it.
Enjoy the poem– and please pray that Christ would BringBackHisGirls.
With Love in Christ,
Annalee, ISAIAH 62 MINISTRY
