Activist Faith

Social networking giant LinkedIn has just updated its system to allow users to add volunteerism and causes. This may not seem a big deal to some, but consider the possibilities. What if every Christian on LinkedIn took a few minutes to let the world know (of at least their friends know) how they are helping to change the world?

Christianity’s biggest challenge has long been hypocrisy, but the truth is that for every hypocrite, numerous unseen individuals labor silently to help on the front lines of change in their communities and around the world. We don’t do it to earn points or to show off, but we serve others out of our love for Christ.

Today, you have an opportunity to both show love and to share how you show love. Take time to do both.
