THE ANGELS AND US
Matthew 18:10"See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.
I consider myself belonging to the little ones and am proud to have various friends among them as well. People being without means or weapons to speak out for or defend themselves in the everyday rat race here on earth.
How I love the fact that every human being has its own personal angel reporting in front of the Lord's face.
It means above all the safe feeling of being seen, seen and cared for.
So are the hookers on the corner, the mute and seemingly helpless stroke patients, the street rebels, the plague ridden, the retarded, the various psychic ill, the soldiers and prisoners.
We are all unique and of equal value.
On my Mezuza is written:
Psalm 91: 11 For He will give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
We are surrounded by legions of angels, ordered to be there for us.
This is the Bible's happy message for today.
