My students and I read and talked about a chapter in Mere Christianity called “Social Morality” this morning. The chapter is about social structures and giving to charity. Two thoughts have stuck with me the last couple of hours… first, that we are gifted with talents which equip us to change society and second that, when we believe in a cause, we should give sacrificially for it. I think of Jesus parable of the talents and I think of Jesus sacrifice for the Cause. I ponder these things and I ask myself, what should I be giving up? What should I be willing to risk? What are you willing to give up? What are you willing to risk? And for what cause? Your cause? His Cause?
