Did you see small X’s on people’s hands yesterday? If you did but didn’t look into what they meant, I highly recommend you check out the END IT Movement by clicking the link above.
In a nutshell, yesterday was Shine A Light On Slavery day and these small red X’s are meant to bring awareness to the slavery that still exists in our world today. Many people think slavery is something in the past, but they are wrong. More than 20 million people are trapped in slavery today.
END IT is on a mission with their partners to end slavery and free those being held in captivity. As christians, we are called to be freedom fighters for our brothers and sisters.
This verse is on my heart daily, and just a bit more so yesterday as I wore my red X; “The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners” Isaiah 61:1.
Can you name the celebs who participated yesterday!? 😉
