Something to consider in light of the Truth.
“Give strong drink to him who is perishing, And wine to him whose life is bitter.” Proverbs 31:6
I can’t tell how many times I’ve heard Christians give me their reasons, justifications, and lectures on why they are so much more true to their God, because they withhold the dollar to the homeless man, lest it be spent on booze or drugs. Some even go so far to say as I will offer them a meal, of course that isn’t what they were asking for…is it?
There are places and experiences that speak to the soul, that develop our interior and allow us to grow, to learn….to become. Inevitably I find that silence always surrounds these. Those who spend their lives filling the void with noise…something to distract them from the reality that they are alone, will always struggle to develop and mature as humans, as man and woman, and whatever awaits us beyond the mortal toil we call life.
