Matthew’s portrait of Jesus reminds all of us of the importance of compassion. One way to practice compassion is to help those in need. The tragedy in Haiti becomes a way for us to practice compassion. The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship provides an avenue for us to give. CBF has people on the ground in Haiti and will use the resources sent for food, water and shelter. We can give through our church and designate our gifts to Haiti relief. We will send the money to the CBF and it will find its way to Haiti. Together we can help. Let us practice compassion.
