What sweet work!
I think one of the major reasons Americans live such selfish lives is their safety fetish. "I'd love to help [XYZ], but I might [get sick, get mugged, lose my home], so I'll just donate to a charity who will pay someone else to do the dirty work." Jesus did not play it safe, he lived his love boldly. Otherwise well-intentioned Americans might do well to consider what measured risks they could take to more actively express love.
