the earthquake that hit Haiti. Most of the capital (Port-au-Prince) is destroyed. About 3 million people have been affected. Do you get that? People. These aren't just nameless faces on the news … foreigners whose paths you will probably never cross. People. Help them.
Maybe you have a budget. Maybe donating to help people in Haiti will mean you don't get to buy a new outfit this month. Maybe you'll have to skip a couple of trips to your favorite coffee shop or cook dinner yourself instead of eating out. Maybe you'll have to save for another month before you can upgrade to a cell phone with 3G coverage. BIG DEAL. The minimum donation is $10. You won't miss it. Trust me.

Dear friends, do you think you'll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it? For instance, you come upon an old friend dressed in rags and half-starved and say, "Good morning, friend! Be clothed in Christ! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!" and walk off without providing so much as a coat or a cup of soup—where does that get you? Isn't it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?
