Staring from the inside out we see a 6 year old boy watching his “Daddy” walk out of the front door for the last time because Daddy says “He’s had enough and he’s probably not his kid anyway…” We see him hide behind a chair while he watches his mom get beat to a bloody pulp by her new “Mr. Right” boyfriend.
It was only a joke. He’s overreacting. That’s a fake tear drop in his eye.
Or is it?
Are we afraid to try and understand?
Would it take an awkward conversation and holding his hand?
But we have rules to follow and laws to obey;
Surely Jesus wouldn’t want us to disobey.
I’ll talk to someone about it and we can “deal with him later.” I’ll wait for an answer and until then “he’ll be okay.”
Lost. Lonely. Left to die. That’s what’s behind the tear drop in the corner of his eye.
Believe it or not Jesus died for him, that filthy piece of trash.
He called him his own and healed every rash.
He showed love and mercy.
Go and do likewise.
A friend of mine sent me an email sharing their heart. To me it was such a beautiful display of how God is revealing the Gospel to them. Here are a few lines of the email:
“The goal of my time on this earth is to point to Him, to Worship Him, and lead others to Him. The time He has allotted for my life is to be spent for this purpose. Not personal gain, but service to the One who created me, gave me gifts to be used for His glory and purposes, and who gives me the time to do as such.”
They went on to say…
Though I’ve only lived for a short time (approaching 22 years or 192,720 hours [without counting leap years] or however you like to look at time) I have experienced both the “ups” and “downs” of time. It has taken my life prison and has set it free.
Friends, I have come to the conclusion that maybe it’s time to put my time in the hands of the One who created time- because lets face it, outside of Him, time is nothing but a race to death. But fear not because the Creator of time has overcome death. It’s time to be free.
I love eating hot wings for many reasons. Obviously the taste would be at the forefront of them all, then the ease of accessibility, and then astonishingly enough because of the mess they make.
