This week I thought I'd leave you with an article that is posted on the Christian Post website that I thought was very thought provoking. The title of the article is To Whom Much is Given: America and the Global Tithe.
Here are some excerpts...
Worldwide it is believed that more believers were martyred in the last century than during the previous 1900 years of Christian history. They were martyred by secular religions like Communism and Nazism as well as theistic ones such as Islam. The numbers were in the millions. The 21st Century is shaping up to be no better. One look at the atrocities now being committed against Christians in the Sudan is a stark reminder of this fact. But one place this slaughter has never occurred is in the United States. We have been blessed for hundreds of years to live in a nation that has allowed us the precious freedom to live out our faith in peace and security. Yes, there has been some persecution against believers here during recent years but such difficulties are not worth comparing to what has been inflicted on the saints in other parts of the world. We are blessed beyond measure to be Christians living in the United States.
Finish reading... and remember to be praying for our family in Christ who is suffering.
