Tsunami help

First of all, I think it is a good thing to offer help those victims of the recent Tsunami disaster.

But I can' t help but wonder where all the international outpouring of help was for the good people of Florida when hurricanes ripped through their homes and businesses a few months ago.


The per capita GDP of Sri Lanka is $3900, Indonesia is $3200, India is $2900, and Thailand is $7400. The per capita GDP of the United States is $37800. We can afford to take care of our disasters. These other countries cannot.

One should give without expecting to receive. Jesus said in Luke 14:13-14:

"But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind,
and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. You will be repaid at the resurrection of the just."
