Lost Dog!

Crying her eyes out, the UNC grad
approached the policeman and said
that her dog, Fido, was lost.

The officer suggested that she put
an ad in the paper.

The UNC grad replied, "Well, I thought of that, but I decided against it."

"Why did you decide against it?" 

asked the officer.


"I remembered that my dear little Fido can't read," sniffed the UNC grad.

The housing report could hardly have been grimmer: "U.S. Home Sales Fall off
a Cliff," reported CBS News.

Great, just what we need—more bad housing news on top of skyrocketing gas
and food prices. The economy hovers near recession, and polls tell us that
the majority of Americans think we are on the wrong track. Citizens are
wringing their hands in despair—including many Christians.

But believers have no business succumbing to despair: Despair is a sin,
because it denies the power of our sovereign God to look after us. It also
suggests we have forgotten our history. Century after century, God has used
difficult times to reveal the glory of His kingdom.

For instance, consider the inexplicable (to the world) love and sacrifice
Christians modeled in Roman times when devastating plagues arrived. As I
write in my new book, The Faith, at the onset of a plague, the wealthy fled
to their country estates. But Christians believed each human being was made
in the image of a loving God. Instead of fleeing, they ministered to plague
victims, often at the cost of their own lives. Tending to the sick increased
the survival rate of plague victims by as much as two-thirds, and this
witness attracted many new converts. By acting on the teachings of Christ,
without regard to their own welfare, these Christians progressed from being
a small sect to the dominant cultural group.

In modern times, we see the same love expressed to those dying of AIDS: It
is Catholic Charities, after all, that lovingly cares for many of the
sufferers. And Christians are in the vanguard of the campaign to wipe out
AIDS in Africa. We see this in the consecrated lives of great individuals
like Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German theologian who resisted the Nazis, and
was executed for his involvement in plots to assassinate Hitler.

Even Christians behind bars become a great witness during tough times. In
the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the inmates in our Texas IFI® prison
program took up a collection for those who had been ravaged by the storm.
But this was no one-time affair. Every time I visit that prison I see men
who have next to nothing walking forward and dropping their contributions in
the offering basket: everything from candy bars to cans of sausage to
toiletries. These are things the inmates buy at the commissary for their own
use. But they choose to share these goods—not only helping victims of
Katrina, but also aiding Houston's homeless.

The teachings of Christianity give people a reason to care for the sick, the
desperate, and destitute. Only Jesus taught that His followers could find
Him in their neighbor. How Christians endure adversity can be our most
powerful witness. Maybe you are involved with prison ministry, or you have
opened your home to someone hurt by the sub-prime mortgage crisis; maybe you
take meals to needy families (which I remember my parents doing during the
Great Depression). When you do these things, God will use your witness in
the worst of times to reveal His great love for humanity.

We must remember this when we are tempted to wring our hands in despair. If
we persevere when others give up—if, in tough times, we give and do even
more, then the world cannot help but notice.
