Children, children, Children

Monday July 9th, Galatians 6: 1-3 Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day's out. Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ's law. If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived. Laws are always about someone else. That is why it is so hard to get realistic ethics laws passed in hallow halls of government. What God calls us to do is to govern ourselves first and foremost. And the standard by which we are judge ourselves governed is how well we stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed and share their burdens. It is what we are to be doing as individuals. It is what we are to be doing as cities and states and nations. Most of our energy is about controlling someone else so we can go on and on in our uncontrolled opulence. I looked forward to that point where my children would enjoy giving at Christmas more than getting. God is still looking forward to that in us.
