If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday (Is. 58:10).

The devastation brought to the Texas and Louisiana coasts because of Hurricane Harvey and its flooding has also delivered an opportunity for all of us to serve here in North Texas. The power of strategic and responsive leadership is vital during times of crisis. May all of us be counted as caring leaders with fervent prayer and compassionate service. Find out how you can step in and help through this Dallas Morning News list.

UPDATED:

Since Thursday, we've started to get the word out that all items collected during our summer clothing drive will go to families in need after the rains and floods of Hurricane Harvey. To donate items to help families move forward, please go here.

At Dallas Leadership Foundation, we feel it's important that every leader find his or her our niche during this historic crisis. No role is too small or insignificant, whether it's clothing, money, blood donation, emergency help on the ground, or heartfelt intercession. God calls leaders from every sphere. 

Our response to His leadership call is critical. We live in unprecedented times. Leaders from every walk of life can help shore up conditions where people live, work, and worship. The challenges lie in clear view. Food security, chronic unemployment, affordable housing, education, and emergency preparedness are among the growing list of needs.

Infrastructure issues, as we've seen over the past week in Houston, also demand our strategic focus. As a state. As a nation. (To understand the context of what's happening in Houston, read the 2016 report by ProPublica and The Texas Tribune.)

In other words, it's time to be proactive, not silent. God's people must be on the move.

He is.
