I’m going to do something that I rarely do on this blog, I’m going to speak my mind on politics. I learned early on that speaking politics with my friends just called for hurt feelings and ruined friendships. But, this is something that I can’t leave sit. It is so cold & so heartless as to be mentioned.
Earlier this week, Rush Limbaugh said something that I found appalling: ‘We’ve already donated to Haiti. It’s called the U.S. income tax’. Mr. Limbaugh considers himself a true out-spoken leader of the Christian Conservative. I find this truly oxymoronical as this is a very un-Christian thing to say. Jesus himself taught to help the needy, poor & indigent.
Three bible versus come to mind to me, immediately:
Jesus replied, "And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and your yourselves will not lift one finger to help them.
In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: "It is more blessed to give than to receive"
Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
Lastly I say this to Mr. Limbaugh, 1 Corinthians 13:3 states the following “If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.”
Spewing negative energy into any problem, be it Haiti or opinions on the present politics, solves nothing at all. If one is so unhappy with the current state of anything, then get your butt out there and make the change. Ghandi himself said “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” and it holds true. Live by example. Do good for others. All others, not just those you believe deserve it or those who meet the criteria set by your personal agenda.
Sorry, friends., truly. I just needed to get that out before I exploded! LOL! That would be a mess, remember Poltergeist 3 when she fell thru the ceiling and had all that jello all over her? Yeah… kinda like that 😀
Be blessed, my friends. I wish you a wonderful week filled with happiness, family & friends… I salute you!
