I went with the youth group from church today to help victims of flooding in our area. It was so sad to see the "guts" of someones home being pulled out and piled in a giant trash container to be hauled away. Carefully planted flowers and vegetables mangled by whatever the flood dragged through. Peoples whole winter supply of firewood washed a block over into other peoples yards. It was so sad. What is also sad is that we did not see any other church groups out helping people. People in our community have had their lives turned upside down and people should be helping them. There are too many "Sunday Christians". Live your faith, show people the practical love of Jesus. Don't wait to be asked. Even if it turns out that you can't do anything, people will know that you care.
