Yuko awezayo kusikia kilio chetu?
Words sung by children in Michael W Smith‘s song We Can’t Wait Any Longer, but do you know what they mean?
I’m guessing like me you don’t know what those words mean, but does that give us an excuse to ignore the people singing them?
What if I now tell you what the children were singing
Can somebody hear us crying out?
When we hear someone crying I’m sure most of us would immediately want to offer comfort and support to those crying. But as these words I’ve shared with you show, it can be difficult to know and understand when some are crying out for help.
Not speaking the same language as someone else shouldn’t make it ok to ignore them and ignore their needs. Being part of God’s kingdom, and loving God should be more than enough to encourage us to understand and reach out to everyone in need, regardless of their nationality, language, colour of their skin, or even their background.
Isn’t it our responsibility as Christians to make sure when someone cries out for help that they don’t have to wait any longer for help!
