"By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth."

The Twitter tag #prayforJapan has received a lot of flack as empty sentiment without providing tangible results. For those of us who have been blessed both spiritually and materially, let us not close our hearts against our brothers (in Christ) and neighbors (the ones who are in need) in either of these areas.
