My mind has been blank so far this week…not sure why but each time I try to think nothing comes to mind.
I got to thinking about not being able to think – insert smiley face here – and came up with a few things. Maybe I’m supposed to quit trying to think and listen better, or slow down a bit. Maybe I should just clear my mind by getting alone with God in nature…the river comes to mind, haven’t done that in a while.
Maybe I’m being directed closer to people, I mean to hear their stories, feel their joy or frustrations in a different way than I usually do…
Maybe all of the above.
That said I think I met Jesus twice yesterday in the faces of some people who brought to my mind Jesus’ words:
“Whatever you do for the least of these…you did it to me.”
And it got my attention…
If we let the goings on of the world distract us away from the suffering of our neighbor…then the real enemy has won a battle.
