Think hard about the following.
Right now I don’t care what the theologian says. Right now I perceive far beyond my perception. I write this for my sake (whatever the years may bring). If it is at all useful to others may the Lord bless as his wisdom dictates.
It began as a joke; a singular break with eternal love. A demeaning of another’s position; that which was given to every creature according to the wisdom of God for the fullness of life. Laughter filled the air in a certain place. Perhaps, even the one that was demeaned saw the humor for a moment. But division was born.
A small distortion of truth began the dissension of unity. A lie gave birth to death. And didn’t death give birth to laughter?
Who did this? Didn’t Jesus tell us? “. . .He is the father of lies.” Eventually 1/3 followed him.
Do you want to see his handiwork? Take a good look at humanity. See how prejudice rules with an iron fist. See how ridicule is so dearly beloved. Sarcasm is a breastplate of shining jewels, and how proud is the one who weilds it with a deft mind. [Don Rickles the king of demeaning]
Color, culture, history, ability, social position, economic status, political affiliation, nationality, and doesn’t the list seems endless. Love does not do these things.
We laugh at one another’s faults because every man is full to overflowing with them. But how quickly the laughter turns to murder.
BEGINNING OF ETERNITY
See how “the ones” go back to the things of a baby.
See how the colors of red and blue are new.
See how innocence begins to develop.
Because they heard the whisper from You.
Acceptance is embraced.
And how the faithful hateful lie,
Is by Love replaced.
13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4)
By His grace;
By His grace,
By His grace!
