What would your life be like without hope?
This is how the Morop people of Indonesia expressed it to missionaries Jim and Joy Elliott:
“We work to eat and eat so we can work. We have no future. We are caught in a trap.”
Reading that helped me pray that God would hasten the day when the Morop people hear the Good News.
It also made me praise God for His gift of grace and joy and future and hope and eternal life and abundant life.
And then it made me stop and think. All around me – and you too – are people who are, basically, working to eat and eating to work. They’re caught in a trap too. The only difference is, there are enough distractions in our culture that they can usually avoid facing that fact.
What should I do about that?
