A Brief Blog Profile: Compassion
by Thomas Hynes
There are a lot of Christian blogs out there. They cover a lot of ground. Some talk about family. Some talk about personal finance. Some even talk about fried chicken sandwiches. The blog Compassion, however, talks about something else. As the name might suggest, they deal with charity. You know? The stuff Jesus Christ was all about. It can be easy to forget that. But, at it's core, Christianity is about helping others. The same can be said for this blog.
On the blog, you can read about the difference between fostering development as opposed to dependence. Sounds a lot like that old expression. Give a man a fish, he'll eat today. Teach a man to fish, and he'll never go hungry. (Wonder who said that one originally...) This post presents 6 questions every person should ask themselves before getting involved with something like sponsoring a child in need. And this post asks readers to think about what inspires them the most.
At this point, I should probably mention that Compassion is part of a larger charitable organization. They connect sponsors to children in need. In full disclosure, this is not just a blog. The main goal, I'm betting, is to get more people to support children in need. And, you know what? I'm totally ok with that.
