BOSTON, MA—Local believer Anthony Park announced to his weekly Bible study group Tuesday morning that he is “just not feeling called right now” to exhibit the Christian virtue of charity in his personal walk with Christ, sources confirmed.
“I’ve really been keeping the idea in prayer for the last few years,” Park reportedly said. “But I just haven’t felt a mystical sense in my heart that the Lord wants me to be generous with the healthy salary he’s blessed me with. Don’t get me wrong—I’m totally open to giving to the less fortunate, but I’m just not sure it’s God’s plan for me, right now.”
“If only He had some way of revealing His will to us,” he added.
Park further added that should the Lord make it clear to him that he is to give generously and seek justice for the world’s orphans and widows, he will “definitely get on that right away.”
“There are lots of Christians who have the spiritual gift of generosity, and that’s great,” he said. “But for me, until I hear it from the Lord Himself—and I mean audibly, using my full name—I guess I have no choice but to keep spending my money on myself. I don’t want to get ahead of God’s will, of course.”
Hey . . . don’t be an Anthony Park. If you’re a Christian, you’re called to care for the less fortunate. Allow God to work through you when you sponsor a child in poverty through Compassion International. Search for a child who shares your birthday or try searching for a child with the same birthday as your child, grandchild, niece or nephew. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.
