This morning as I settled into the comfort of my four season observatory I poured myself a cup of herb tea and I waited for Jesus to appear. Usually he is downstairs waiting there for me in His favorite chair but this morning I arrived before He. (This is a little game that Jesus and I play sometimes. We like to call it "Who gets to the KJV 1611 first?") As I waited on our Savior to arrive, I sorted through a stack of mail that Laquitia had left for me next to the tea service.
There were the usual letters and post cards from Christian (Baptist) friends and missionaries from around the world, there was the usual invitations to luncheons, receptions, weddings and the sort. But one item of mail struck me as very peculiar, It was a glossy brochure with a picture of past DEMONcrat President Jimmy Carter wearing coveralls and holding a shovel in his hand. Well, I must admit I was intrigued to see what exactly what a tree-hugging, liberal thinks that he could say that would interest me. Perhaps he had been placed in a work camp for ruining our economy and was sending out a letter of apology to all decent hardworking Americans.
When I looked inside I almost fell out of my chair. This was not an apology! This was a pledge form asking ME for money to help build homes for those lazy homeless people. And to make matters worse it was asking that I should give up my vacation time and help him build a house for these no account degenerates. The nerve! Like I would really risk breaking a nail to hang wallpaper for some family that had never worked a day in their life. I was outraged.
"Jesus Help me!" I cried aloud. Well, wouldn't you know that Jesus came walking into the room holding a cup of tea in one hand and that same brochure in the other? "Oh you! You have been here the whole time! And me thinking I had gotten here first!" I said. He looked at me, winked, and said, "Yes Sister Taffy, thou would have to get up pretty early to get one over on me." Oh, he is such a prankster sometimes!
We went about our morning devotional and that is when He led me to today's scripture,
"He that buildeth his house with other men's money is like one that
gathereth himself stones for the tomb of his burial."
What this is saying is that if someone who chooses to have a litter of illegitimate children, never lifts a finger to help themselves, and has the audacity to accept a FREE home from a hardworking, tax-paying citizen, then they might as well dig their own grave. Because Jesus and I do not like it. Not one bit! No, these people who accept these homes are going to HELL. And the ones who donate money and labor to this "Habitat for Homeless Degenerates" are doing the Devil's works. Yes they are.
