May 15th - The Least

 The Least - Who is blessed? The poor. The hungry. The hurting. The excluded. Who is about to fall from their places of privilege, power, prestige, and possessions? The rich, the full, the laughing. Jesus implores us to love - love everyone, including your enemies. Jesus commands us to do good - to everyone, especially those who curse and abuse. Jesus turns the ethic topsy turvy - if someone takes your coat, might as well give them your shirt. If they strike you once, give them the other cheek as well. Make a public display of the injustice. Rather than return injustice for injustice, do to others as you would have them do to you! This is the way of the "least of these." Based on Scripture:  Luke 6:17-31
