When Will the People Say They've Had Enough?
When I say people I mean everyday people. I mean the so called little man whose voice is heard every bit in heaven as the leaders. Enough with the BS about drag shows and bathrooms - enough with the distractions on abortions and critical race. Enough is enough!
This brief meditation is given in a thought Exodus 3:9 CEB "Now the Israelites’ cries of injustice have reached me."As if I needed more reason to question humanity the wiki reads,
The Exodus (Hebrew: יציאת מצרים, Yeẓi’at Miẓrayim: lit. 'Departure from Egypt'[a]) is the founding myth[b] of the Israelites whose narrative is spread over four books of the Torah (or Pentateuch, corresponding to the first five books of the Bible), namely Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.The founding myth?
Forgive the brief diversion.
ENOUGH!The story itself - The Exodus presents us something of a message and a thought if we take heed.
The Israelites cries for injustice. The people cried out! The people said enough is enough! Where is the promised change? Where is the promise we heard about and read about? Where is help?
Exodus 2:23-25 speaks more clearly,
23 A long time passed, and the Egyptian king died. The Israelites were still groaning because of their hard work. They cried out, and their cry to be rescued from the hard work rose up to God. 24 God heard their cry of grief, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 25 God looked at the Israelites, and God understood.The people cried.
The religious people cried. The not religious people cried - The People Cried!
The world is looking to "Christians" for leadership. And while I agree there should be more compassion and less criticism and many could be louder or better speakers of good things - good news as Christ said. All the people though bear a responsibility of speaking and saying - Enough is Enough!
Enough!This is not acceptable.
Believe what you want to believe but reach inside your better selves and speak up. Demand better! Insist on better! And God will move - the Spirit of God in man will refocus the children of promise; the church - to move.
Christians will get their head outta their bums and speak up too.
