    ADRA works in 140 countries and provides services to children and adults in education, health and sustainable livelihoods.  For example, ADRA-UK usually works with other agencies, such as DFID (Department for International Development) or Oxfam in order to deliver services such as water sanitation (Sri Lanka) education to children out of school (Children’s Advocacy Programme) or assisting farmers fully utilise their cashew harvest (Ghana) as well as in emergency response (Hurricane Dorian).

    There are other examples which can be cited from www.adra.org.uk or www.adra.org

    Write a paragraph explaining why the work ADRA does is important

    The work ADRA works is important because it helps to provide sustainable solutions to some of the world’s most challenging situations.  In their development work, ADRA works with affected communities and encourages them to find workable and long-term answers to their current situations.  During a disaster, ADRA is one of the first responders.  This means that they assess the situation before partnering the local community to ensure that solutions are found in a timely manner.

    Read Matthew 25:31-46 and write a paragraph to explain what it means

    Jesus uses the metaphor of a shepherd separating his sheep from his goats. Sheep represent people who are charitable - this does not have to be material means - to those in need. Furthermore, when the ‘righteous’ answer Jesus in verses 37 - 39, this infers that sheep do not discriminate when helping people and help without incentive, since they still helped strangers without knowing that they were also helping God.

    Conversely, goats represent people who neglect those in need, those who discriminate against those they help. Verse 44 infers that people who are goats only act when they can recognise an incentive in front of them, since their reply suggests they did not know that helping others would mean that they are helping God, and consequently inherit the kingdom of God.

    Furthermore, the text suggests that charity must meet the needs of the person and that not all help is satisfactory help, this can be seen in throughout the parable where a need is listed then the appropriate response to that need, i.e. ‘we see you hungry and feed you’.

    (Linked to ‘explain why the work ADRA does is important.’)

    Moreover, Sheep as animals are prey, herbivores - they are not high in the food chain hierarchy - and they are largely defenceless. Suggesting in service we as sheep are not the powerful helpers, serving the weaker people below us but, are God’s humble servants.
