Our political climate is rife with leaders using fear and hatred to divide and misguide, sending our country down an immoral and lawless abyss. Many have fallen prey to these divisive tactics, through ignorance and in many cases, self-serving motives.
As I watched the carnage in Baltimore on television, Luke 19:41 came to mind, “As he drew near, he saw the city and wept over it.”
How He must be weeping for the innocent people of Nepal suffering the devastation of an earthquake while citizens of a city choose to destroy businesses and homes of their friends and neighbors.
How He must be weeping as He sees evil considered acceptable while His teachings mocked and His followers persecuted.
What can we do? How can we wipe the tears from His face?
