Don't Miss Out on This Matthew 25 Challenge

Last week I came to you with a little challenge. Together, we will be joining in a week-long text challenge through World Vision called The Matthew 25 Challenge. It's easy for me to get comfortable and forget that there are families that struggle to have even the most basic necessities like clean water. I can easily forget that nearly 1600 children under the age of five die every day because of diarrhea from dirty drinking water. I can ignore the headlines about refugees and seek out the gossip in the entertainment section. I can scroll through Instagram and be totally oblivious to anything happening anywhere beyond those squares. 

Let's quit ignoring these things but instead challenge ourselves to get out of our comfort zones and grow as individuals. Let's take the resources available and join in this challenge with our children because when we know better, we can do better.

Why Join the Matthew 25 Challenge?

I believe it's hard for us to even understand the challenges that our brothers and sisters around the world face on a daily basis. How can we understand what it's like to walk miles and miles for dirty water that makes us sick when all we have to do is turn on our faucet? It's challenging to understand famine when we have never had to go hungry, truly hungry a day in our lives. Can we even wrap our minds around the idea of having to flee our home because of government violence not knowing if we would ever be able to return?

And how do we teach these things to our children if we don't fully understand it ourselves?

As part of the Matthew 25 challenge, you are going to be invited to step out of your comfort zone with daily challenges, stories of children from around the world and reflection questions so that you can process what you are seeing and hearing.
These challenges will enable you to have real honest discussions about the worlds issues with your friends and family and will give you the resources you need to take action.
