Rarefied theology

I’m a privileged guy. Not so much anybody thinks I ought to give it up: I don’t get much benefit from right-wing tax cuts. But I’m not suffering, and a lot of people are. I suffered too, once, but from here I can get to thinking less about people and more about numbers. Like, half of us are outright below ‘middle class.’ And it’s crushing. And I feel terrible. But I forget: this is God’s world and these are his people.

As I rail against the moral filth in government (and it is filthy), I start wishing I might summon the Lord to do justice – and then I remember. He already has done. Those with much have their reward. Those with little have eternal life. Every morning we wake up and laugh and hope and wait. And it’s good. It’s wonderful. It’s great to be alive!
