We need a Faith that leads us to humble courage, a courage which can carry us from Psalm 22 to Psalm 23—which is a much longer journey than it looks down there on the pages of Scripture.
When we sit down and read through those pages, are we only thinking about ourselves and people who have experienced this world as we have? Or, are we mindful of others who have experienced this world in other ways?
We have misjudged the Movements of God, because we didn’t see that God is on the side of the oppressed.
We resist quick judgement, and we appeal to the Grace of God, because God Loves everybody.
Where in our lives are we pursuing comfort, where what is called for is a little discomfort?
Hospitality has always been essential to the faithfulness of the Love of God.
We don’t have to carry our burdens alone. In God’s great Mercy, God invites, welcomes, all of who we are—all that we carry.
