Hello everyone! I’ve been working on a piece to put together what I have been blessed to see regarding what God has to say about the treatment of the poor and needy. This is a little overwhelming, and yet I know that the good Lord will walk me through it! As for myself… I’ll be kicking and screaming all the way through it! Yet… I know that this is what I am called to do! For the wretchedness… the broken hearts… the scandal that is the church today… and for God’s sake! He loves the poor so much!! I write this with tears filling my eyes as I was the elderly homeless man who was told to move on down the road this morning in the rain by a minister . It wasn’t the fact that he did this act of unkindness towards me personally so much. It was the fact of breaking God’s word about how to treat the poor! We had a brief discussion on this topic, and it ended up in futility! I cried as I took down my tent for him, and the ones that he’ll influence. Pray for this man please?! God knows who he is. So I don’t have to name him. Thank you and God bless you!
I’m currently reading a book by Rabbi Abraham J. Heschel, The Prophets. To me he is a brilliant man. The words to describe, and explain, as best as an one can the internal life of the prophets! An absolutely wonderful, and amazing read! This book I’ve been waiting for for a few weeks, and it arrived two days ago, and I can hardly put it down! WOW AND WOE! He explained for me what I thought I knew. That the prophets are either relevant today or they are not?! If relevant, then I need to know the prophets heart by study and prayers. And if irrelevant, then they don’t matter at all now?!
My heart and soul tell me that the prophets matter! Their words are alive, and if read enough… They will work at softening the stone heart we carry within. Then I can see my brother and sister as God sees them… With the heart of a mother for her children!!! God bless you and good night! I’ll be back soon I pray.
