The Gospels call us to live in the now--not at some future time--in the Beauitudes we are in Luke that if we are blessed by the way we choose to live out our discipleship--if the disciples choose to live poor and hungry, share in the tears of the people of the world, and are so committed to Christ that the world hates them--then they are blessed--but if they seek wealth, power and fame they are no better then the false prophets and will not share in Christ's glory--I asked myself every day as Iook at my life what do I find awaiting me--the beautitudes or the woes? We are called tolive simply, walk with people and share Christ in our lives. Deo Gragtias! Thanks be to God!
The key to reclaiming our birthright and harmony, hidden in the most obvious of places—our plates—requires (as appropriate to mythic wisdom) that for us to be free, we must first free those whom we chain. To reclaim our purpose, we must restore the purposes we have stolen from others. Dr. Will Tuttle
