+ The curved world


The curved world


It is the moment of light
because we hear the teaching of Jesus the Christ
but the moment of darkness
because we ignore His message of love
It is the moment of richness
because we are redeemed by His cross
but the moment of nothingness
because our faith is little and poor
It is the moment of love
because God reveale Himself to us
but the moment of hate
because instead of believing we condemn Him
It is the moment of peace
because we are forgiven from our sins
but the moment of war
because we cannot accept and respect others
It is the moment of life
because we share in His resurrection
but the moment of death
because we never practice what we preach

    A most profound writing. Filled with wisdom and truth. A writing worthy
    of all God's children but lost and forgotten by so many.
