  1. Do you think this quote can help us in the areas of conflict and compromise? ie with issues like illegal immigration, military awol, illegal drug activities and other legal/moral issues?

    A story like a Mother is here (USA) legally and her child is here but illegally. The child needs medical care, no insurance, no money, what does one do? The child needs education, what does one do?

    We all have heard or seen lives like these all too often? The hearing of the life stores gives one great conflict and very stressful for many USA citizens. Do we block it from our minds and let the chips fall where they may? Do we try and find a political way? Do we volunteer our services for a cause. Go to bed quick and turn the covers over our head. Is this like saying let God take care of it any old way but make sure He does not involve me. Because my character is just too great!

    What would be the grading of my character? Excellent or below average? Just some of my thoughts of conflict as I ponder Palm Sunday and the fellowship of communion at the Lord’s table this blessed day.
