Keith Wright :: How do we decide which justice issues to address?

  • “I really believe God calls us to the little things,” says Keith Wright, International President of Food for the Hungry. “Sometimes we mistakenly prioritize what we think is more spiritual or more impactful, and I don’t believe that’s the case.” It’s important the we seek our calling and try to determine our unique gifting to address injustice, but we have to avoid thinking that there’s one big, epic call that we need to wait for. “I think God’s created all of us to make a difference.” It’s also important to realize that not everyone is going to be called to the same thing. So avoid self-righteousness and realize that your particular calling isn’t necessarily the only important, urgent issue.
