Just Thinking

May 30, 2016

Georgians are celebrating the Super-bowel being played in Atlanta. The city of Atlanta can build multi-million dollars stadiums but never give a thought to citizens living in poverty and sleeping outside in a park on frozen grounds. Some of these homeless, needy and hungry citizens have fought for our freedom to live in a “free Country.”

As we are eating and drinking on Monday, this freedom would not have been made possible without the sacrifice of our veterans. Our city and state leaders have failed this State and veterans by attaching their names to new stadiums, a giant Ferris wheel and street cars and have over-looked the needs of the city. “

For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,  I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me. They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you? “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me”. (Matthew 25:42-45)

Prayer: Father forgive us of our sins of omission and commission. We ask You to order the steps of our leaders. Grant them wisdom and understanding. We ask You to be Bread to the hungry and supply their every need. We just can’t reach every needy person, but we know that You are able. Let this mind be in our leaders which was in Christ Jesus.
