On this day in 30 BCE Egypt’s Cleopatra VII commits suicide.
Rev Dr Durrell Watkins
“For some reason, the most vocal Christians among us never mention the Beatitudes.”
Jesus said, “Blessed are the downcast, the grieving, the meek, those who long for justice, the merciful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers, the oppressed” (Matthew 5.3-11). He did NOT say, “Blessed are the homophobes, the misogynists, the racists, the child abusers, the war mongers, the greedy, and those who teach that only one religion offers access to spiritual truth and human fulfillment.” Christianity isn’t about worshiping our own prejudices and calling them “Jesus.” Christianity is the desire to live with Christ-like compassion, integrity, and the hope to heal the world. May we who call ourselves Christians embrace this vision.
May I be blessed to be a blessing to the world, in Jesus’ name.
