What is wrong with our Society

I saw a blogger on FB post about a puppy that was found starving in Louisiana.

All of the comments under the photo she shared conveyed the same emotion: Outrage. Disgust. How could someone do such a thing to a puppy?

And my jaw just about dropped. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think animals should be abused. But where are our priorities?! Aren’t people worth so much more than animals? God calls us to take care of the orphans, not the puppies. So why aren’t we more outraged by   the fact that we waste so much food, and yet there are children starving?

So I made this meme (I think that’s what they’re called?)

Please share it or pin it. Spread it around. Get people thinking about our priorities. We take so much for granted (myself included.)

  1. I think it’s as bad, not worse, not less bad. Just equal. None of God’s creatures ought to suffer. I think people don’t actually realize how bad other people in other parts of the world really have it.

      I don’t think any of God’s creatures should suffer, but I do think that it’s worse when people suffer. Matthew 10:31 says that we are worth more than many sparrows. I agree though, that most people in developed countries have no idea how badly others have it. We say we’re starving when we haven’t eaten since lunch, and supper is late. They say they’re starving when they haven’t eaten in 2 days and might not eat today, either. I don’t know why God has blessed me so much and why I live here instead of a starving village halfway across the world. I know I didn’t do anything to deserve it!

    You’re brave to post this, as you’re probably going to take a lot of flack, but I’ve had very similar reactions to mailings from the ASPCA. I do feel for these animals, but I just think we need to take care of the children first. I first started feeling that way when I looked at what their numbers were on what it cost to care for animals per day. It’s often more than it would cost to feed the child. Ridiculous.

  3. I think the reason for this is because the animals are closer to home. The starving children seem farther away and less easy to help. Unfortunately, it’s out of sight, out of mind for most people. Last holiday season, my family donated to this program that provided a goat to a starving family. I don’t know if you’ve heard of the program, I can’t remember the name of it…. I hope we can do it again this year and since I have a blog now, I can spread the word more. Thanks for reminding me of this, I can’t wait to try and encourage others’ to donate. :)
