Such A Pity


“It has often thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if You can do anything, take pity on us and help us!”

~Mark 9:22, NASB


I have never seen a compassionate man die a bad death.

~Augustine of Hippo

If you are not sitting down, perhaps you should find a seat. In my prayer time yesterday I was struck with a feeling, and I am not high on feelings because they are not reliable, but yesterday I had compassion for the president. You read correctly, I am talking about Joe Biden. I have absolutely no hate, malice or contempt for the man: in truth I feel pity and I am sincere. The Greek word translated ‘pity’ is splanchnízomai and it means to be moved by one’s bowels which the ancients thought was the seat of compassion, love and pity. This word is used only 12 times in the NT and in direct reference to Jesus ten of the twelve. The only two exceptions are the verse above {father pleading for his son} and the story of the Prodigal Son where it is used in reference to the Prodigal’s father. So it is not a bad word. It may be the most noble word in the NT because it is used only by our LORD or in reference to His character and action.

It must have been the Spirit of God that came over me because I felt a genuine sense of compassion for Joe Biden. The man is incompetent. He has serious mental problems. He must have some form of dementia and it is disturbing that they are willing to use the man as a stooge. It is obvious that he does not know what is going on. Someone told me the other day: “His wife needs to put a stop to this.” Where are his children? Where are the folks that love the man? The man is pitiful and they are displaying his pitiful condition on the nightly news. They are making a spectacle out of this man’s personal misfortune. No one can hole Joe accountable for his actions, mentally he is not there. Hey, I may not be that far behind Joe but Big Mama is as sharp as a tack and you can bet your last dollar no one will be using me for their personal gain or entertainment. I have no doubt; not one, that Big Mama will drop the hammer on anyone who disrespected me the way they are doing Joe. Obviously, my political views have not changed but the Joe show is getting pathetic and someone should put a stop to it. Perhaps the deep state has something on Mrs. Biden and maybe they are afraid they cannot control Harris. I do not know but the Joe show is heart breaking.

It has been a great week weather wise. I do have a prayer request today. Please pray for Big Mike Childers. He is having some test run today and he is battling several health issues. I talked to Brenda Brooks last night and she sounded very good. She doesn’t stay by herself anymore, she rotates between the two daughters. We are going to two services this Sunday but it is not due to the crowd: I wish that were true. We are trying to accommodate those who are not ready to come inside. Our outside service will begin at 9:15 and the inside at 10:15. God bless you. I hope you have a great day and thanks for reading the blog.
