Weekly Inspiration !!! Matthew 18:21-22 (21-35 full parable) #weeklyscripture #weeklyword #inspiration #fruitforthespirit
|Forgiveness is a miracle. In these verses, Peter believes himself noble for saying that he is willing to forgive 7 times. Jesus almost responds in a satirical way when saying 77 times. He implies, using some random number, that if you are counting the number of times you have forgiven someone, you HAVE NOT actually forgiven them.|
Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
We have to take it! Liberation comes through us, not asking for concessions from oppressors and the dominant. And that starts with education, BUT NOT just formal education… a Revolution of Consciousness!
Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
—Martin Luther King, Jr.

I can’t be pro-Black and Christian, but you are sexist and homophobic
… But that’s none of my business

To say that the past few days have been emotionally taxing is to greatly understate and trivialize how hurt & fed up I am with the treatment of people, my people, in this country. 2014 and we’re no further from persecution & slaughter than we were since….ever. Since forever. At what point have we not been given the treatment of a rabid dog? Of subhuman? Of beings undeserving of fair & humane treatment? Of beings deserving of protection?
I am not impressed with your president’s statement regarding the death of an entertainer before that of a boy being senselessly put down by an officer of the law. Or the lack of transparency in the media & by the police. Or the fact that several eyewitnesses have corroborated & confirmed the story that Michael Brown, an 18 year old who was to be furthering his education post-high school as of yesterday, was shot multiple times and ultimately murdered with his hands raised in surrender pleading not to be, for j-walking. Though the media speculated shoplifting or a struggle with the officer, who has YET TO BE NAMED, there is still no justification for the fact that the victim was unarmed (though the pressing of the fact is problematic in & of itself) was executed and left on the cement to stew in a pool of his own blood for hours. Peaceful protests were met by canines and riot gear. The media failed, unsurprisingly to report that. Your president failed, unsurprisingly, to report that.
How many more innocent brown people are to be put on micro-trial & executed by law enforcement before it’s acceptable to be upset? Before it’s acceptable to be angry, stop asking for permission to have change & demand that it be given before there is consequence? I’m not satisfied. I won’t be until there is accountability and reform. We are tired, we are angry, and we are well within our right to be.
I can’t see this happen again. I need to do more.

How many more innocent Black people…
