We cringe when we hear about the heir who inherited a fortune and squandered it all, or the person who was entrusted to carry on a famous legacy, only to soil the family name in disgrace. Sometimes people can literally be surrounded by things that others only dream of, yet fail to do anything worthwhile with them. Today we see a young man who grew up in the presence of God’s covenant promises, but he chose to mock it and walk away from it all.

Starvation. Extreme poverty. Child slavery. Child prostitution. These are words that should not exist in any language. Yet they do exist, and for millions of people, these words are a daily reality. As the church, we have been called to not only help these people physically, but most importantly, to take the hope of Jesus Christ to them. LifePoint is committed to doing this locally as well as globally, and today we hear from two of our members who recently returned from touching the “untouchables” in India.
