God Bless Your Home – 27 August 2008

For today I’ve chosen this poem written anonymously:

God Bless Your Home

God bless your home
And all within,
The friends who come;
Your kith and kin;
Your shelt’ring roof,
Your homely fare,
Your place of rest,
Your toil and care.
Bless absent ones
And those you love,
And guard and guide
Them from above.
And grant that soon
Sweet peace will reign
In this and ev’ry land again.

I’m convinced that the “sweet peace” mentioned in this poem will become reality only when humans stop treating their fellow inhabitants (whether human or other animal) of this earth, that we all share, with respect. As long as humans continue to be hard-of-heart toward any of God’s creatures, they will have conflicts and wars.

God’s original intent, as plainly revealed in Genesis 1:29, was for a vegan earth: “Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you.”

Unless we get to the root of the problem – exploitation of our fellow creatures – and change course, we will continue to slide down the slippery slope we are on now. There’s only one way out of this dilemma: Go vegan!

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
