We were told winter in Cape Town was quite the show and it has not disappointed us...but with that said....bring on spring... I am over all of this.
"Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen; to loose the chains on injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter - when you see the naked, to clothe him. THEN YOUR LIGHT WILL BREAK FORTH LIKE THE DAWN, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard." Isaiah 58: 6-8
I have to be honest, its a hard thing to grapple over. I have no answers at the moment and never will really....but I think so many of us living in America and many other places don't even grasp the concept that we have so much and they are all LUXURIES not necessities. I was in Red Hill last week with a team and government folks were there passing out and explaining about these portable toilets that can go IN their homes. Yes...IN their homes. On a cold, windy, rainy night they have to leave their house and go to a port-a-potty but now they will have the luxury to have it IN their house. I used to have FOUR toilets in my house.
