We Care

By Don Loftis | 02.14.18

The doctor told his patient that he was fifty pounds overweight, and the patient replied, “I don’t care.”  A friend asked his coworker, if he was going to watch the playoff game, but he was told, “I don’t care much for hockey or sports in general.”  The pollster asked, “Who are you going to vote for,” only to be told, “I couldn’t care less.”  All of these responses reveal an attitude of apathy and disinterest.  Such attitudes will not result in any constructive or lasting action.

 

Genuine concern for others is necessary for us to be interested in feeding the hungry, comforting the grieving, or getting involved in disaster relief efforts.  Calloused hearts rarely give generously of their money or their time.

 

For 40 years, Larry West has been associated with the We Care Ministries of the White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ.  He has sought to cultivate a passion on the part of Christians for those who are lost spiritually.  How can we witness millions in foreign countries living and dying without Christ and feel no hurt?  How can we live in neighborhoods where 90% are not faithful Christians without shedding a tear?

 

Mark revealed Jesus’ true heart toward the lost in Mark 6:34: “When Jesus went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and He felt compassion for them because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things.”  Jesus cared deeply about the lost.  Do we really care about the lost?  Until we care more about the lost than our comforts and entertainments, we will not rescue very many.
