Refugees. One.

From Africa.

It is sad to say it, but the real victums of the many disasters on this continent are the poor people who have been left behind? The boat people off the coast of Libya are the rich, who can afford to get out, but they face much exploitation by those who traffick people.

Many countries in Europe today do not want these migrant refugees, because they know they are a drain on their resources and yet many are professionsal who will fill those undesirabable jobs?

Many Europeans had to leave between 1800 up to the present to go to both the United States of America and Canada, in effect invading another peoples land and exploiting them? But today too many excuses are to be found in refusing people from this, that and the other.

NO GOD?

Foolishness.

Many people today trust in things, sex, material goods, property, land, pets, but they claim no faith or beliefe in God?

There are many who claim to know God, they do good deeds and works, they are pious and religious and they try to be good living.

There is a God, who we remember every Christmas and Easter, that sent His one and only son to bring us back by His sacrifice for our failure into relationship with the Father.

Remember and Act.

In the made rush up to the big day we tend to forget that not everyone, even around where we live is looking forward. Other religions we know do not believe, but their are many who hurt for various reasons and this season may be the last straw for them.

It is easy to remember the past and sufferings in other lands, but homelessness and poverty is all around us. We need to stop look and help, even a mince pie, a card and a hello to a neighbor may be enough to save them this Christmas.

‘A time to Reflect.

This where we go wrong with any kind of Rememberance, we forget to reflect on the day. Reflectio is a great thing to do for anthing, because it allows us to see our mistakes and learn not to do them again?

Many armies do not reflect, because they do not want to destroy or reveal their failures. In all wars soldiers of any conflict are left scarred mentaly, without help. We hear and see what seems to be help, but this is usually for certain ranks.

War also leaves victums and many accusations, so it is better to talk afterwards to try an resolve things. Meanwhile the bible has much to say on the matter of remembering, so let us reflect on His words to help us push on.

Job 4:3,  14:13,   Psalm 25:7,   37:25,    Matthew 19:27,   Mark 14:9,   Luke 17:32,   John 15:28,  Hebrews 10:17.
