One of the best ways to be a hero to children in foster care is to talk about children in foster care. In our world today, there are a million different things vying for our attention: social media, Netflix, online shopping, and on and on. So when we spend time with friends, our conversations often drift towards these day to day things.
But what if we were intentional with our conversations? What if we started talking about hard things – things that matter – things like helping end a solvable crisis like foster care?
Sometimes, the first step is the hardest step to take. But we believe we’ll never make a difference in this world until we first talk about how there’s a difference that needs to be made! So the next time you find yourself chatting about things that come and go, we challenge you to spread the word and start talking about the least of these.
Like we said before, there are tons of things fighting for your time and attention. Our world is more stimulating than ever before and we’re never at a loss of entertainment and things to do.
But what would happen if instead of binge-watching another new series on Hulu, you took time to pray for orphans in our community? Or you planned to attend our two-hour NOMORE Orphans Experience? Or you even invited friends to join you at our next NOMORE Orphans Experience?!
Jason Johnson, an advocate for the Gospel of Christ and for kids in need, said it like this, “While we are all not called to do the same thing, we are all certainly created to do something.”. He went on to give 10 really practical ways you can serve. Read about those here.
We’ve heard it said that the days are long, but the years are short. So don’t let this life pass you by without doing something that will leave a lasting impact.
And finally, you can be a hero to the least of these by supporting them financially.
Let’s just put it out there: no one likes talking about money. Especially when it comes to giving up your money. But when we believe that everything we have belongs to God, it’s not difficult to give back to Him and what His people are aiming to do for the least of these.
Here at NOMORE, our donations go directly to changing the lives of the least of these and that includes children who need a loving home. Make a donation today by clicking here. It only cost $8 to impact a life through the work of NOMORE.
Regardless, do something and start today. Let’s not sit idly by. Let’s declare NOMORE!
