Proverbs 22:16 – he oppresses the poor to increase his riches, And he who gives to the rich, will surely come to poverty.
There’s a lot of media coverage concerning the crackdown on illegal immigrants. Our government has taken a more forceful stance to deal with the problem by separating children from their parents. Then certain members of our government are using passages from our Holy Bible to justify what they are doing. Some people, in protest, are even citing this same tactic being used to keep slaves in bondage during the early years of this country.
I believe I am speaking the heart of the Lord when I say this isn’t showing the evidence of our belief in; “In God We Trust. This country was founded on the principles of God” and so forth. Don’t misunderstand me. I know we need to control illegal activity and people in our country so we can be reasonably safe. But I know there is a better way to handle this problem than to do a barbaric thing such as take children from their parents.
Sometimes I think the people we’ve voted in to run this country have lost their sight on what it means to be a humanitarian. I think they have become jaded by wealth to the point that it seems both Democrats and Republicans have one goal while in office and that’s getting rich! If the wall is built, someone is getting rich. If the children are taken, somebody is getting rich. It seems we’re nothing but pawns in a chess game. It’s scary to think what will happen when someone yells; “Checkmate.”
Be assured that God is watching all of this. He sees what’s going on. Know that He loves His defenseless children and will not tolerate anyone misusing them. One day we will all see who is in control. One day we will see justice and be glad. One day some will see justice and tremble.
