Judges 6:11-24; Mt. 19:22-30

 

Anthony de Mellow tells a story of a person seeing a naked child on the street, and the person asking God “What are you going to do about it?”  And God replied, “I certainly have done something, I made you.” Maturity comes when our world opens up and we sede that we are not at the center of it.  Whether I am in Santa Cruz, LA, New York, Palm Springs, I encounter homeless people and I am always reminded that I was made, along with all people to do something about it.

Will Tuttle comments:

Refraining from eating and using animals is the natural result of seeing that is no longer chained within the dark and rigid dungeon of narrow self-interest.
