He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: But he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he. ~ Proverbs 14:21
“They need to return to where they came from! USA! USA! USA!”
These words don’t appear to be that hurtful until you hear them and then look at the people who have embraced this patriotic bigotry.
That’s why breaking news from the Supreme Court came as no surprise to legal junkies.
The Supreme Court made a split decision on President Obama’s executive order that would have allowed four million immigrants who have been residing here without legal documentation in the United States not to be deported.
In other words, four justices were supporting the lower court decision to deport and 4 justices were against the lower court ruling.
What the world is seeing isn’t something new by now.
America is so divided in its moral standing that it is hard for any American to convince the world we care for anyone but our own self interests.
The argument on deporting families with children to go back from where they came is that they came in this country without permission.
The argument on the other side is that since they have helped keep America running and have only sought to have a decent living for them and their families. They should be given the opportunity to do so.
Let’s pray that the human race never escapes from Earth to spread its iniquity elsewhere. ~ C.S. Lewis
When we look at both sides of the arguments, we have left out the One who is and will always be the deciding factor of how we should live our lives out while here on earth.
Perhaps a healthy dose of what God says will put us all in our rightful place.
The final decision will always be God.
After all, He is the Supreme of all.

Deuteronomy 14:7-11 -Generosity to the Poor
7 “If there is among you a poor man of your brethren, within any of the gates in your land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother, 8 but you shall open your hand wide to him and willingly lend him sufficient for his need, whatever he needs. 9 Beware lest there be a wicked thought in your heart, saying, ‘The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand,’ and your eye be evil against your poor brother and you give him nothing, and he cry out to the Lord against you, and it become sin among you. 10 You shall surely give to him, and your heart should not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the Lord your God will bless you in all your works and in all to which you put your hand. 11 For the poor will never cease from the land; therefore I command you, saying, ‘You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land.’
