INSULATED

I like that word. It speaks to me of safety, comfort, control.

We were insulated in our Motherís womb from the sharpness of all bumps and bounces by the amniotic fluid in which we floated.

We are insulated within our homes, most of us, by walls and heating and air conditioning.

If we are fortunate we are insulated by the loving care of a family. All this and more is insulation to us from outside assaults.

Ah, but are those injuries that come from within the walls of our insulation, and those are the worst and the most destructive and the longest lasting.

I wish God would slap down the offenders and give them what they deserve. But then what should happen to me for the times in earlier years when I myself was ill natured and said hurtful things to my children?

The words we say are powerful and they do indeed shape our children. The words our parents spoke over us shaped us. This is a point of great concern.

I am not so much addressing the power of words in this thought presentation as I am the physical and mental abuses of beatings and incest as well.

It is a naÔve person who thinks that there is little of this abuse happening in our American Homes, and in the entire World.

I counseled young teens for a period of time and learned that the abuse is worse than most of us imagine. The young people are cutting themselves with cutting instruments because the pain of bleeding alleviates the pain of their souls. It is not limited either to only the girls. May God save us.

All the while we ignore the suffering of those unable to rescue themselves. We also ignore the responsibility that God has placed upon us as the Church to be salt in the earth.

So where should we begin? Where shall I begin?

Evangelizing of the unbelieving community around us would be a good start. The readers of this writing all live in different places. Consider the impact we could collectively affect.

Not only does the unbelieving person need evangelizing but so do many of those who sit in the pews of the Church. It might surprise many of the "Insulated" to discover that spousal beatings and child abuse of all kinds is perpetrated by both males and females in the homes. Children are neglected and ignored and misused in too many ways.

This is repulsive to God! Why are we silent? Why is the Church silent?

Maybe itís because the Church and its believers are consumed with the beauty of our salvation. God is good! God loves everyone! This is the beginning and the ending of the Message.

No it is not. There is much more, and most Church goers are not so much as aware.

I have just discovered the Pocket Testament League. They provide beautiful resources to assist us in evangelizing the lost. http://www.ptl.org

If your heart hears this truth, plan to do something, for Jesus sake.
