Tonight President Obama called for an increase in the minimum wage in his State of the Union Address. Roughly $80 more a week. $320 more a month. It's a start. But too many of our brother's and sister's can't find work to get minium wage. If Jesus came looking for a job, would you hire him? Do you think his religious affiliation would get in the way of getting the job done? Or would we cast him out into the streets to survive? Minimum wage is just that, a minimum. We need to do more. And we can do more. It starts with us. You, me, and all those we claim as our Facebook friends. For every one of us who can help, there is one in need of help. Simply ask.
Prayer: Glen, who needs to work a second job to make ends meet. Pray for the growth of his home church. And pray for those who support it.
