Earth: what if some bad people, some terrorists even, are hiding among the good, down trodden refugees?

Heaven: yes, but what if some are good?

 

Isaiah 65:8  “But I will not destroy them all,” says the Lord. “For just as good grapes are found among a cluster of bad ones (and someone will say don’t throw them all away –some of those grapes are good) so I will not destroy all Israel”

It’s funny how quickly we, as Americans, turn to gloom and doom and fear and evil. Us, who have been given every advancement the first world has to offer.

And I’m singing an old Disney song to calm my bug down and I can’t help but wonder how many refugee moms are doing the same (maybe not Disney).

But under totally different circumstances.earthly logic

“many nights we’ve prayed with no proof anyone could hear, in our hearts a hopeful song we barely understood. But we are not afraid although we know there’s much to fear…”

And I find it impossible to believe there aren’t good people among the refugees… Among the children, among the women, among the men.

 

And repeatedly Jesus tells us if His entire flock is safe but one is in danger, He will and does actively pursue that one.

One is worth it to him.
