From street level you often can see a lot further and a lot clearer – when you want to – there’s no where near as much superfluous scrap in the way. Have been thinking these days of the rest of the world instead of my own stupid homeless crap. The Ukrainian mess – the intolerance in Russia and Uganda – the back and forth Left v Right political venom here at home; all of this hate. What happened to us as people?
Hunter is reminded of Leviticus 19:34…
“But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God”
as well as Matthew 22:37-40.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Again, what happened to us? There’s not much loving our neighbors going on, it seems. Not judging by what’s going on in much of the world.
All we can do, I guess, is sit and watch things unfold. We can try to spread around as much love and forgiveness as we ourselves can muster, and we can…wait.
