lack of posting

was due to loss of internet connection for about 3 days – hopefully now that we’re back online I’ll be able to get back on track.

in the mean time, I came across these astounding verses in Leviticus yesterday:

Leviticus 19:33-34 ” ‘When foreigners reside among you in your land, do not mistreat them.  The foreigners residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt.  I am the LORD your God.” (TNIV)

I know the sense of the Hebrew in verse 34 is “And when a sojourner sojourns…” meaning it may or may not be permanent – this may be moot – the foreigners among us (note about them being legal or illegal) must be treated with dignity and respect – well, it’s certainly giving me lots to think about.

What say you?  🙂
