— All over social media, you’ve probably noticed red-X images and photos of hands marked with permanent red Sharpies. Last night, our three teenagers came home from church with red-X’s marked on their hands. Friends on facebook and twitter have images of ENDIT and statistics of modern-day slavery all across their profiles.
So, as Daring Daughters, is this something we should participate in?
Of course, we’re all totally against slavery and human trafficking, but as Christian mothers and leaders, we need to make sure we’re joining with something that’s okay to support. So, as a heads-up, here are some facts to get you in the loop.
- The ENDIT movement is led by a Christian pastor, Louie Giglio.
- The ENDIT movement was prominently featured at the mission conference, PASSION, with over 60,000 young Christians in the Georgia Dome.
- Many prominent Christian leaders have shown their support for the ENDIT movement, including Beth Moore, Mark Dricoll, Chris Tomlin, and Kari Job.
- The ENDIT Movement has been featured on The Christian Post, Charisma News, and also has a positive review on CNN.
As Daring Daughters, we need to DARE TO CRY for the needs of this world that grieve God’s heart. Human slavery, exploitation, and Human trafficking are issues that need our voice. In the famous Bible chapter about the virtuous women, Proverbs 31:8-9 tells us . . .
“Open your mouth for the speechless,
In the cause of all who are appointed to die.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And plead the cause of the poor and needy.”
As Daring Daughters, let’s raise our voice and our hands. Let’s also learn from this great example of using creativity and contemporary social media to help expose a horrible need of modern-day slavery and to raise awareness.
Ladies, let’s DARE TO CRY and to pray . . . for this need.
