Come all who are thirsty

Sunday August 3rd Isaiah 55:  1 "Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. This is the invitation to the Land of the Lord.  What if!!?!!! What if that was the way the world worked?  What if the children of God, all who claim that, no matter what name they use for God, worked toward this vision?  What if the children of the world had at least the minimum for life? What if the children coming across the southern borders were treated as the children of God?  What if the children in Gaza didn’t have to die because of the hard heartedness of the Palestinian and Israeli leaders?  What if!!?!? Reality Check!!!! 1 in 10 children in this world dies before age 5 in developing nations - hunger being a primary cause. (1 in 165/ U.S.)  That reality is not God's reality nor is it God's calling, however; it is the result of the world as we have made it.  But, What if we were to put as much energy, ambition, imagination and money into following God's plan as we do into the antithesis of God's plan, war.  The US spends as much on military as does the rest of the world.  What if?!?!?  What if a quarter of what is spent on military was spend seeing to it that all had enough to eat and live, would we not then have more than enough military to fit our needs? Most of the deaths of children in this world are a result of the greed of those who sell the weapons to the nations who then find a need to use them.  The U.S. is one of the largest supplier of weapons.  Come all who are thirsty is the call of the God we claim to serve.
