LOOKING AT…

THE BIG PICTURE.

Just “WHO” are those people out there…somewhere… who might need “HELP”?  Any guesses?  Yep, this category of “peeps” includes EVERY single one of us!!!  Tall-short.  Fat-thin.  Rich-poor.  Political-non-political.  Christian-non-Christian… EVERYONE!!!  WE ALL NEED HELP!!!

So, who needs more “HELP”?  What kind of “HELP” is REALLY “HELPFUL”?  What kind of “HELP” might be hurtful?  Who?  When?  Where?  Why?  So, so many questions.  So, SO many different answers.

LIFE… IS DIFFICULT, folks.  EVERYBODY needs “HELP” in some way, shape, or form.  The “CRAZY” thing… Many people out there don’t even realize they need help, AT ALL.  “THIS”… becomes tricky.  How do you help people who don’t think they need help?  And what is the best method of “helping”??? 

Giving money is good, right?  Hhhmmm… perhaps giving money to “HELP”… might also be enabling.  And what about FOOD?  Giving FOOD is ALWAYS a “HELP”… correct?  Or maybe not when considering there may be medical complications that individuals are  unaware of, rendering certain foods “harmful”.  And what about SHELTER???  Perhaps giving shelter to the homeless?  Oh, “THIS” is always good, right?  Maybe not.   Homeless folks out there are “homeless” for a variety of reasons.   Perhaps they consciously “chose” to escape the everyday madness of “LIVING” LIFE, (SURVIVING).   Perhaps they are mentally ill.  Perhaps losing a job lead to… losing it ALL.  Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps…

“THIS”… is “LIFE”.  There are many, Many, MANY reasons to explain why people are where they are.  Situations are different.  EVERYTHING… makes sense in the realm of each individual’s reality.  IT ALL MAKES SENSE.  We just don’t ALWAYS “GET” it.  Perhaps we don’t understand.  Perhaps we don’t even try to understand.

This is where we might run into a “BANDAID” method of helping people.  What???  This is simply throwing the same “fix-it” solution at similar problems that have very different etiologies.  The “FIX”???  Is temporary and requires or demands that we “fix it” again, and Again, and AGAIN!!!  Tell me, “WHO” exactly is this “HELPING”???  The individuals who actually need help OR the individuals who “need” to provide that help???  And does the type of help needed render it, somehow, different?   Hhhmmm… makes you think, huh?

The truth is:  WE ALL NEED HELP!!!

The question is:  WHAT TYPE OF HELP IS NEEDED and… ACCORDING TO WHO???

WOW!!!  DOUBLE  WOW, WOW!!!  So, so much to consider with EVERYTHING.  And very difficult to consider EVERYTHING about ANYTHING!!!  Yep, I think I am drifting, folks… OVER THERE!!!  OVER THERE!!!    I need sleep!!!  Goodnight.

Please give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
