I stood in line at a grocery store to pay for a couple items with cash. In front of me a woman stood with a full cart while holding two children. The mother had more than enough tattoos. She held an iPhone and a pack of cigarettes. C’mon, you know where this is going – She whipped out her access card to pay for her groceries. The check out lady responded at the end, “you saved $5 today with your store card.” I thought, “who saved $5?” She didn’t pay a dime for all of that!
In Africa a tribal war heated up. How does one tribe know who belongs to another tribe? By the size of their nose!
Catholics fight Protestants. Jews fight Palestinians. Syrians kill each other. Whites kill blacks, blacks kill whites. On and on it goes.
Do we have time to hate? Hate is prelude to murder. Life is hard for all of us. I don’t know what the tattooed woman with 2 children is up against today. I pray that she finds life and that she walks with Jesus. I pray that her children can grow up and get out of poverty.
