You don’t have to look very far to find a homeless person. Many people in this condition made their own beds with alcohol, drugs, and rebellion. But on the same token, there are those who were forced into homelessness though changes that they couldn’t control. So we have to admit that becoming homeless can happen to anyone. Because of the uncertainty of life, one should be thankful to have any kind of home, be it ghetto or suburbs (Ephesians 5:20).
I realize there could be problems with the living conditions of some homes and neighborhoods. But such is life, and we must find a way to overcome or avoid the hardships. Don’t you know that Jesus had no regular place as home (Luke 9:57-58). Yet, He was the perfect example of what it means to be thankful (John 17:1-26). Since nothing is promised to be here tomorrow, we need to reflect on how important the current day is and be thankful for the roof over our heads.
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
