I have to deviate a little from my usual routine or article which I have to do because of the current time which seems to have interesting contrast.

The time of King Solomon with Israelites when the Lord appears to him as described in 1 Kings 9:1-9 of our Bible (NIV). When King Solomon had built the temple and achieved what he had desired for the Lord to do.

The Lord appeared to him for the second time. He said, to him:

[4] “As for you, if you walk before me faithfully with integrity of heart and uprightness, as David your father did, and do all I command and observe my decrees and laws. [5] I will establish your royal throne over Israel forever, as I promised David your father when I said, you shall never fail to have a successor on a throne of Israel.

[6] But, if you or your descendants turn away from me and did not observe the commands and decrees I have given you and go off to serve other gods and worship them then I will cut off Israel from the land I have given them and reject this temple… this temple will become a heap of rubble… because they have forsaken the Lord their God, who brought their ancestors out of Egypt and have embraced other gods, worshipping and serving them—that is why the Lord brought all this disaster on them.”

Although we do not say or judge that our world today is suffering from this social malady or wickedness where we experience the extraordinary hardship with this coronavirus, it is a fact that people of power and many of them are truly insensitive to many of our plights.

As I said to my friend, I was watching CNN news report from Syria where bombing occurs every now and then and innocent victims suffer. I watched children of 3 to 4 years old alone with dirt on their faces while a building behind them crumbles and in rubbles and luckily 2 or 3 of them survived.

Yet while watching them, there were no tears in their eyes, not seeking help or screaming for help in panic all they do is stood on their grounds quietly.

I felt and noticed that there are no more tears in their eyes that can flow or wet their cheeks, there is no more chill or jittery to show because obviously they feel or experience them every day and nothing happens differently.

They were used to it. War and their sufferings had become part of their lives and not seeing them crying are no longer unusual. This is the legacy of our world leaders who did not do their best to assist them.

Millions of them now live in refugee camps and continue to suffer from neglect and poverty and world leaders brushed off without genuine reasons except power. No humility and no kindness.

Maybe we can turn the tide if we can be helpful, forgiving and repentant for the sake of our world we live. God our Lord is waiting for us.
