When will the body count bother us?

Not as Americans, but as Christians, when will the news we refuse to pay attention to finally start to jolt us? The New York Times has a picture at the top of their website showing body bags of a Syrian family. The report is death by nerve gas. Thousands, thousands, have perished in Syria. Hundreds, if not into the thousands, were killed just this week in Egypt.

I am not asking this as a matter of American intervention. I am asking this of me and other believers: When will the body count bother us? When we will be shocked the point of prayer? When will we cry out to God for solution, and then offer ourselves as a possible solution?

    1. Prayer is my point here. In prayer it may be that God can birth some ideas. It’s more out of a burden for prayer than just government action that I’m wondering when we’ll start caring about the slaughter going on in these places.
