As I was editing this image taken in a small town in China, I reflected on how life in Australia is really convenient. If we turn on a switch, we have electricity. We turn the tap and have clean running water. We get sick, we can go to the doctor or the hospital. And, if we are hungry, food is readily available.
But today I’m remembering that:
- one in eight people who do not have access to safe water supplies (over 850 million)
- one in seven people who will go hungry each day (over 900 million)
- one in five people who do not have electricity (1.4 billion)
There is plenty we can do to help with prayer, giving our time and resources and considering our lifestyle choices here in Australia. It’s not a lost cause.
