i'm sorry.

"Jesus, I'm sorry for the size of our houses, I'm sorry for the cost of our cars. I'm sorry for the sum of our vacation budgets, I'm sorry for our breast implants, I'm sorry for our shoe collections. Forgive us for lathering ourselves in pleasure and comforts, when on the very same planet are people who can't make enough money to feed their kids. Show us what sharing is supposed to look like, and give us the courage to listen."

If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion, how can God's Love be in that person?
