Does It pay To Visit Vermin?

       Pure and undefined religion in the sight of our God and father is this: to visit orphans and widows is their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

      Local business men in Brazil call them "vermin." Garbage. "if we let them grow up,they will be criminals, a blight on our society?'' there are an estimated twelve million homeless children on the streets of Brazil. Their parents lost them in crowds, died, put them out. However they got there, they are there. These children beg, steal, sell there bodies. They eat garbage. They start scarred and end scared, or dead.
     Some police men and others, contracting to kill street children so that they will not be a menace  to the city. In 1992 over 400 of these children were killed weekly.

     It is the same in a lot of other big cities. The Philippine government estimates that there are 15,000 child prostitutes in manila between the ages of nine and twelve. One estimate suggests that in Thailand there are 800,000 girl prostitutes between the ages of 12 and 16.

    If it takes hundreds of dollars to to stabilize a mature American christian who has been sexually abused, what in the world would we do with thousands of adolescence  who knew nothing but abuse lawlessness and violence on the street. 

A representation of 15,000 people ( a representational of the child prostitutes in manila.)

The amount of homeless children in Brazil is more than the population of the state of Ohio!

We are so blessed by the Lord. These kind of statistics make me so thankful for everything God has blessed me with.

In him!

    He answered, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your MIND....."( Luke 10:27) 
    I have found that even on very profitable days I don't remember what all I was thinking about that day. Ever thought I do not remember is a thought that I could have used to glorify God. When i made this realization I started to think, What if I tried glorifying God with all that time I was thinking on stuff that was not important enough for me to remember.
    In the multitude of my THOUGHTS within me thy comforts delight my soul.( Psalms 97:19)
    God blesses us with comfort, even the fact that we can worship him with our THOUGHTS is a blessing.

     Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy THOUGHTS shall be established. ( Proverbs 16:3)

    I want to worship God in all that I do even in those moments when I am just thinking of useless twaddle. Another good reason for commit my thoughts to him is simply this, Satin is a deceiver who attacks our minds, and God is the only defense against him. 

    Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose MIND is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. (Isaiah 26:3)

In Him!
