A Thought and a Verse for Today- March 08, 2012

Your friendly Hippie is scheduled for her first chemo treatment today. So you can imagine that the last thing I want to start this day with is thoughts of politics. Which makes me think that maybe I should give more thought to “though. prayer, and Scripture” on a daily basis!

Here is a verse, a thought and a prayer to pause and consider. – Ninure da Hippie

For the needy shall not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the poor perish forever. Rise up, O Lord! Do not let mortals prevail; let the nations be judged before you. Put them in fear, O Lord; let the nations know that they are only human.
– Psalms 9:18-20

We are not disembodied spirits. God apparently values the material enough to endow it with the spiritual. That’s what the Incarnation is all about. We’ve come at this whole notion of the exaltation of the spirit by losing respect for the vehicle of the divine, which is the body. Where do we see God? We see God in nature and the people around us.
