Today we are living in a global village. Yes, it’s a big world but we’re all connected in so many ways like at no other time in our history.

Here is Australia we have our own challenges but we really are still a ‘lucky country’. We’ve been blessed in so many ways and it’s easy to forget that many billions of people in our world live on just a few dollars a day.


Some of the global issues we are facing are huge – things such as poverty, disease, war, and famine, just to name a few. These challenges are so huge that we can be overwhelmed by them. Yet each one of us can make a difference.


Here are a few things that you might consider doing:


  1. Sponsor a child in a needy country. Check out Compassion or World Vision for starters. 
  2. Make a financial donation to a reputable world relief agency.
  3. Take a trip to another needy nation and do some ‘hands on’ humanitarian work.
  4. Pray – after all, God cares about the poor and needy.

Jesus told us to love God with all of our heart and to love our neighbour as ourselves. In our global village, our neighbour is the person next door but also those around the world.


We can’t do everything but each one of us can do something.


Global Issues … Think about it.
