I could have done more…

“I Could Have Done More…”

This is perhaps the most touching scene from any movie ever made!

How many people are haunted by the words of Oskar Schindler shown at the end of the movie,  “Schindler’s List”?

Oskar Schindler should inspire each of us to work to end injustice and end hatred and discrimination.


February, 2018, the youngest survivor on Oskar Schindler’s list is now 81 years of age.  Eva Lavi was recently allowed to address the United Nations Memorial Ceremony for Holocaust survivors. He saved her life by asking she be released from Auschwitz because her tiny fingers were needed to clean the barrels of guns.

Her stories is here. “I feel guilty I survived.”

What Should We Be Doing?

The Holocaust was the most horrific event that has occurred in my lifetime. I was born during the midst of this horror and as terrible as it was, the number of people dying because they do not know the truth are many more than the number who died in the Holocaust.  There are so many today walking in darkness who could be reached if only I would do more.

When I think of this, I always wonder, why do I not do more?

Jesus is the Light of the world, yet we who know Him go about our way while many are perishing in the darkness, never finding the one Way that has light and leads to life and  unspeakable joy.

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” John 8:12

There are those who know about Jesus, yet they do not worship Him and they will miss His return because they are not:

…looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ…Titus 2:13

There are millions who have never even heard the truth. We who know Him must do more to reach those who only know about Him.  I must do more…
