Poverty – The Seedbed of Evil
Thursday, October 23rd, 2014
All is separating, dividing and pulling apart because the rich have separated from the poor. I will not allow the rich to sit at a table filled with abundance while the poor are excluded.
So, where do the problems begin? With the disadvantaged because they are wounded and hurt. They lay by the wayside and when the Good Samaritan does not come for them, they are easy prey for those who seek only evil.
They cannot overcome violence nor the temptation to respond with violence. Their situation is an open door to those who would exploit them. Now, the harvest suddenly appears – terrorism in some areas, Ebola in others. Poverty is the seedbed and for so long, the rich nations have exploited the poorer ones, using every means to sustain their own lifestyles and taking no account of the lifestyle of the poor nations. Look at all these seedbeds and realize that the world of evil has many fields that have not yet brought forth their harvest.
These seeds have been sown for centuries and only now comes forth the full harvest. What can be done at this late date? What efforts can overcome evil that has so long been allowed to grow?
The answers are not easy. The road to world peace is not short, but if the world will just listen to me, at least it will find that road. Right now, all is confusion and millions are spent on weapons that destroy instead of addressing the poverty that enables the evil to flourish.
