The Wrong Side of History


Pharaoh instead of Moses.
Caesar rather than Christ.
   Wealth over God.
   Privilege and power.
   Grab the sword.
   Enslave others.
   Mistreat the poor.
   Pillage the earth.

The wrong side of history:
   Apartheid in South Africa.
   Hitler and his hatred.
   The Berlin wall.
   The smell of napalm in the morning.

The choices we make against the will of God … choices that diminish love rather than build it up … negative thoughts; bitter feelings … the darkness we welcome and the light we shun.
