While doing research for talking with the youth group tomorrow night I ran across a Congregational Toolkit from Evangelicals for Darfur.

I really liked the many scripture references it gave:

Proverbs 24:11-12
Isaiah 2:3-4
Isaiah58:9-12
Micah 6:6-8
Proverbs 3:27
Luke 21:15
James 3:17-18
Matthew 25:31-46
Luke 18:1-8
Luke 10:25-37
James 2:15-17

I’m not sure which one I’ll use yet… some seem more powerful and in your face than others… I read back through them and bolded the ones I really like. The Bible is full of so many good passages :)

My first inclination was to use the Good Samaritan (Luke 10) and the Least of These (Matthew 25). But the James 2 passage really speaks about taking action… and Micah 6:8 is great and I have heard that as the definition of worship… “8 He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” The Proverbs 24 passage is good for people like the President…

Anyway… these are my thoughts for now… maybe later I’ll post what I talked about!
