Getting Your Hands Dirty.


We cannot just live in an ivory tower feeling pure and clean and judging others.

We have to get our hands dirty.

We cannot be afraid of immorality or corruption.

We have to meet people where they live.

And not judge them for what we think are their sins.

But to love them.

And to show them mercy and compassion.

To be agents of God's infinite forgiveness.

We must never forget that we are dealing with human beings no matter how low we might think they have sunk.

And it is not for us to clean them up or to impose our moral assumptions.

But to show them love and compassion for their suffering.

To bless them.

And to pray to God for their ultimate benefit.
