Wouldn’t it be nice if we could sail like an eagle past all the struggles and poverty of today’s world and come out on the other side? Flying past it may seem like the best decision for us because then we don’t have to get involved or get our hands dirty. Unfortunately, this is not what we are called to. Diving in and lending a hand is how we fulfill our mission to be Christ’s hands and feet in our world. We are called to resist the temptation to “fly” away from trials, and instead use our gifts to help bring an end to them.
