End It X


It’s here again, Shine a Light on Slavery Day, and once again the End It Movement is taking the red ❌ to the hands of people all over the country raising awareness of the plight of far too many people that are in slavery.  It has been amazing to watch this effort grow over the last several years.  The Daily Buffet will continue to shine a light as often as it can on this very real and very important subject. I also encourage you to take action beyond awareness by checking out the movement’s site and look for ways you can help and contribute.

And as we spend this day in freedom, lets us remember the wise words of King Lemuel’s mother

Open your mouth for the mute,
    for the rights of all who are destitute.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
    defend the rights of the poor and needy.  Proverbs 31:8-9 (ESV)

I am pretty exciting about Tennessee Senator Bob Corker working so hard to figure out a way to end human trafficking and slavery. It’s been cool to see the red X’s on so many ‘important’ people’s hands.  Today happens to be Shine a Light on Slavery Day.  A day to remind everyone that human slavery still exists, and it still exists in the Land of the Free!


Draw a RED X on your hand and post about it on social media using #ENDITMOVEMENT. Tell your world that slavery still exists and you won’t stand for it. Together we can END IT!

And as Christ followers this is an opportunity where we can stand for the oppressed!


Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow. Isaiah 1:17

Proclaim Release

Sometimes I think these words from Jesus, and Isaiah, are overused and misapplied.

And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the book and found the place where it was written, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed, To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:17-19 NASB)

But today I think it’s important to remember that as Jesus started his mission he mentioned releasing the captives. Today is Shine a Light on Slavery Day. And like last year the Daily Buffet stands with the End It Movement to remind everyone of the many people in our world who are still in slavery. It’s way too many people who are still in slavery.

Please go check out their site and take some action today. Let us do something to get the message out.

Not for Sale


Today is April 9 and it’s Shine a Light on Slavery Day.  Many of you probably didn’t realize the 27 Million people are still in some form of slavery – most of them against their own will.  This happens in the third world as you might expect, but also is happening at an alarming rate in America where 14K-17K people are caught up in sex trafficking each year! This maybe even happening in your town, on the streets you drive down everyday.   Even more frightening is that of the 27 Million, 80% are female and 50% are children!

Today, take a moment to consider those people, surf over to the End It Movement web site and educate yourself about this human travesty.  And then think about what you can do to raise awareness of this issue, and help take steps to end it!

Defend the weak and the orphans;
defend the rights of the poor and suffering.
Save the weak and helpless;
free them from the power of the wicked. Ps 82 NCV
