love thursday 04.19.12 ~ it could be you

Do not oppress the widow, the orphan, the alien, or the poor; and do not devise evil in your hearts against one another.

Zechariah 7:10
You never know when the other shoe is going to drop. You never know when you will be the one in pain--in need. You never know when you will be the one required to rely on the kindness of strangers.

Even if you have everything you need and a big fat offshore bank account to boot, you never know when you might become one of the least of these. Some of us are not very far from that at the moment ourselves.

You never know.

Listen to your mother...be nice.

So true. The bottom can drop out quicker than many people realize. And then I'm aware that for many, many people, they're (our) economic lives are pretty much a shell game. Hope, tenacity and skill at keeping the wolves from the door are daily tensions.

May we all learn to take good care of one another.
