...I am responsible
I have heard this song many times before...but I didn't hear it until today. I was sitting at my desk working and all of a sudden as she sang the words "Now that I have seen, I am responsible", I understood.
I think of Pastor Mike who saw the suffering of war-torn orphans and took responsibility to house, clothe and educate them.
I think of Esther who saw mothers dying and their babies following along and took responsibility to feed them.
I think of my closest friends, the DuPrees whose feet follow their eyes. Wherever they see suffering, they run with JESUS toward it.
I think of my parents who saw the city without foundations and took responsibility to engage in building it...no matter the cost. And it cost.
We will walk through this world and see many many things. If we are willing, there will be times that GOD will open our eyes and we will really see...a situation, a need...but always a person.
When that happens, you are responsible. I am responsible.
GOD open our eyes.
