Genesis 1:3


Genesis 1:3

And God said,” let there be light.”

 

And God vibrated his larynx and pushed air from His lungs and formed his mouth and lips so that words were released into the void and said, “let there be light.”

 

Or

 

And God envisioned what light would be and how it would be useful. God measured the distance light would travel and how fast it would move. God decided how light would bounce off a surface and create colors. God set the heat within light and God considered things I cannot comprehend. And there was light.

Political:


 Over 300 thousand refugees flee Syria and enter Egypt; the US helps where we can. 50 thousand children approach our boarder, some are used as decoys by drug cartels, some flee war and bad people, many flee hunger. The answer in this case is not stronger boarders. These children are not coming here to pick lettuce – so they are not a threat.

foolishness


As I understand it: If someone takes your jacket it is a loving act to offer that person a shirt to go with it. I someone slaps your cheek; instead of fighting back it is wise to offer to let them hit you again. If someone is hungry feed him or her. If someone has done wrong and is sent to prison visit them.

 

This is total foolishness.   But what if it is the path to peace?
