While in Ethiopia I found my spirit experiencing whiplash. One moment I was standing in a hut with a dirt floor. I spoke with a widow with lots of kids, making 25 cents/day. Later that day I was checking into my nice hotel on the lake and eating a meal that would take that woman roughly a month to pay for!
Whiplash! Between poverty and prosperity.
But, in that hut, I met a very poor woman who had very strong faith. Yet, in my muchness, I struggle to choose faith over fear.
Whiplash! Between faith and fear.
“Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God.” – Jesus in Luke 6:20
