Texas has been struggling with a crisis as a result of record cold and winter storms. No power and no water has caused untold pain, suffering and death. I have been intrigued – and deeply saddened – by what I have seen. Not the human toll, which breaks my heart. But how so many people have focused on the politics of what’s happening far more than the humanitarian crisis. They squabble about whose fault it is. Misrepresent facts as part of a massive blame game. Take pot shots at each other. And offer unending commentary about winners and losers. What does it say about people when they are more concerned with preserving power, blaming others and making political hay than what they can do to care for people in crisis? But even more importantly, what does how I respond when I see suffering say about me as a follower of Jesus Christ?
