But you rise up against my people as an enemy;
  you strip the robe from the peaceful,
from those who pass by trustingly
   with no thought of war.
The women of my people you drive out
   from their pleasant houses;
from their young children you take away
   my glory for ever.
Arise and go;
   for this is no place to rest,
because of uncleanness that destroys
   with a grievous destruction.

– Micah 2:8-10

The story goes that a North American missionary went out one day to preach in a barrio of a Brazilian city.

Taking John 3:16 as his text, he stood on the corner proclaiming the love of God for all people. A crowd gathered.

One man in the crowd interrupted the missionary, ‘You are wrong, Señor, God doesn’t love us.’

But the preacher was adamant. ‘Oh, yes. God does love you. God gives all good things, including the Christ, for you.’

The Brazilian, waving his arms at the squalor surrounding him, replied angrily, ‘Then somebody has been messing with the love of God!’ If God gave the earth for all people to share and enjoy, someone has been ‘messing’ with God’s plans.
