Pray and Give

I’ve been reading about the devastation in Puerto Rico all morning and reflecting on Jesus’s brother’s words:

“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but does not have works? Can such faith save him? If a brother or sister is without clothes and lacks daily food and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace, stay warm, and be well fed,’ but you don’t give them what the body needs, what good is it? In the same way faith, if it doesn’t have works, is dead by itself.”
(James 2:14–17) CSB

With all the great tragedies in the world it’s easy to get numb and to throw up our hands and say, “there is nothing I can do.” And it’s true we can’t always help in every situation. But we can help in some situations.

First, pray.

Second, give.

Here are some ways you can help in Puerto Rico, Texas, and Florida:
