A Brother That Is Born

❝This week I feel like I have been the dumping ground..dump everything on me. I need to learn to say no and to ask for help..today was so bad I could have cried…I am going offline for the weekend- hope next week is better- or I’m trading in my family and job for something different.❞–LK

Sometimes–  No, all of the time, People should treat each other like dogs.  I mean it. When a Person finds a dog alone, dirty, hungry  and on the street, they feel compassion fur that dog and they take him in. Or, more than likely, they behave eggg– zackaly like this:

A certain man ____fell among robbers, who both stripped him and inflicted blows, and went off, leaving him half-dead. 31 Now, by coincidence, a certain priest was going down over that road, but, when he saw him, he went by on the opposite side. 32 Likewise, a Levite also, when he got down to the place and saw him, went by on the opposite side.

33 But a certain Sa·mar´i·tan traveling the road came upon him and, at seeing him, he was moved with pity. 34 So he approached him and [touched him] bound up his wounds, pouring oil and wine upon them. Then he mounted him upon his own beast and brought him to an inn [shelter] and took care of him. 35 And the next day he took out two de·nar´i·i, gave them to the innkeeper, and said, ‘Take care of him, and whatever you spend besides this, I will repay you when I come back here.’

36 Who of these three seems to you to have made himself neighbor to the man that fell among the robbers?” 37 He said: “The one that acted mercifully toward him.” Jesus then said to him: “Go your way and be doing the same yourself.” Because… “‘You must love _____God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole strength and with your whole mind,’ and, ‘your neighbor as yourself.’” 28 He said to him: “You answered correctly; ‘keep on doing this and you will get life.’”❞– Luke 10

You will get life. You will get it. Get it? It’s not about heaven or living forever in some future paradise. It’s about understanding and meaning and service and compassion right now! Today! For the Person standing right there in front of you. Today. Right now! Get. LIFE!

When People actually see another Person wandering homeless about the street, loveless, family-less, cold, alone, possibly even injured, afraid, all they do is go home and talk about how badly they felt fur that Person. A few may donate food or clothes to some collection center. Some will write a check or text or PayPal a contribution to some so-called charity or 501c.

They disguise their own deeply entrenched feelings they are careful not to publicly reveal as they spew tiresome, repeatedly expressed, “righteous outrage” about Michael Vick– ‘s dogs, that is. Or they’ll sit fur hours and hours and hours in front of their computers whining incessantly about a burned dog 3000 miles away from where they live, or an abandoned chicken, diseased ferrets in Germany, all after having walked past several dozen of their Human neighbors on the street or having cleverly avoided having to really hear the distress of a fellow co-life traveler, the tiny voice right next to them asking fur help with shame and trembling is successfully not heard.

17A true companion is loving all the time, and is a brother that is born for when there is distress.–Prov 17

Energy must not be expended helping you out, after all “I got mine. Go get your own!” People don’t like it when People ask for help. They call that “begging” or asking fur a “handout.” They call them bums or lazy opportunists. They wonder what’s wrong with them,  after all, something must be wrong with them, they can’t seem to get it together. Being judgmental is the rafter in the eye of the beholder. People don’t immediately see “time and unforeseen occurrence befall us all.”

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans…”–  John Lennon

“…keep on doing this and you will get life.”

Remember Job? Job lost everything he had, except perhaps his once long-suffering wife. No one of his three false friends did. Maybe that’s why People feel so good when the media seizes upon the Ted Williams du jour. Homeless because of alcohol and crack addictions, his saving grace was that he was born with, and ultimately cultivated through training, a velvet voice. He willfully wasted his life and opportunities, even the fortuity of the second chance provided by the help of a Columbus, Ohio news reporter. People were falling over themselves with tangible job and housing offers.

She was never an alcoholic. Or a crack addict. She doesn’t even smoke cigarettes or the occasional marijuana stick.  She is just horrifyingly unlucky. If anyone offered Her a job and a home right now She would not disappoint. There are no skeletons. Not even a closet. Now there would be a fur real feel good story you could sink your teeth into. But watch. People will only withdraw. That’s what they do when your poverty, your lucklessness, your record, your misfortune is “awkward” fur them. Animals are so much easier. Less– awkward.

So, my advice to you, LK…

❝This week I feel like I have been the dumping ground..dump everything on me. I need to learn to say no and to ask for help..today was so bad I could have cried…I am going offline for the weekend- hope next week is better- or I’m trading in my family and job for something different.❞

Learn to say “No.” Just remember Job’s wife.
