Jesus said, “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.” Lk_11:15-26
Wow! If that’s not basic ‘Common Sense 101!’
But you know what, beloved, there are a lot of people who never took that class! We see it in how our corporations are run. We see it in how our governments are run. And we see it on our very streets and in our neighborhoods. You see, there is strength in unity, in agreement, in compassion. And all we have to do, is look to the world’s media to see that there seems not to be very much of any of that around. But keep in mind that that is just the media’s version of our world. Maybe that is exactly what the media wants us to believe!
Maybe it’s time to open our eyes to see another viewpoint. To see all the time and money and prayer that are being spent for those who are in need, after disasters of weather, or accident, or terror driven tragedy, or disease and illness. We really ARE an enormously compassionate and united people. We are God’s people! And we remain so because we are not against the Love of Jesus. We are for Him and everything He stands for.
Stay rooted in Jesus, beloved! Be very skeptical of what you hear and see in the media. Do not be deceived, for their goal is to scatter and not gather. And scattering brings weakness It’s the gathering that makes us strong. And in that strength we are HUMAN! We are God’s humanity!
Jesus came to gather by sharing with us, His divinity!
In Him, we are ONE!
