I don't do politics or world events too often here. Frankly, as Ecclesiastes says, it is vain to do so, with only hot air coming out and nothing accomplished.
But political change is like the wind, constantly blowing ill over humanity. And almost all the pain to people is self inflicted.
Better save your money cause everything's moving too fast.
The circle has come around where a large number of normal folks have been displaced from their homes due to combination of human greed, lust for power and drought. And at least a few of those power brokers are hoping to sow more evil and discord by adding troublemakers to the fleeing hoard. Their hope? To take down the rivals whom they have deemed "evil" in the eyes of God. Which really means they are evil in the sight of the power brokers simply because the other side exists. This has always been the way of the world.
And here on this other side, we are of two minds of the coming hoard. One group, looks upon the weeds in the seeds and thinks the "other" will take root like Kudzu or Mustard and take over, laying waste to all in its path. The other side remembers the stories of the Samaritan and the Stranger, wondering if among the least of these is another sign of God, where the flowers of the field are visited by the dove of hope. Which will it be?
Probably some combination of the two.
Do I have an answer? No, although I lean toward the second option. It has only been seventy years since the last time we chose to ignore the scapegoats. I am afraid it is going to get that ugly when this process is over. And we will all have to stand in judgement for the result.
Unless we heed God's call,
To call me.
