This is great - prophetic edge and really good writing. Love the 2nd line

This reminds me, of all things, of Ezekiel 22 ó a world in ruins and God says: "I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, BUT I FOUND NONE". Such despair. More than a reminder, a rebuke and well done.
Strong, vivid, powerful... the voice of 'the least of these' brought passionately to life. There is no skirting around the issues here - for the least of these life is dark, squalid, violent. Will I turn my face from it tomorrow, or will I ask Him to help me bring His light into the darkest of places? Bless you for this - very, very good.

Wow! Powerful, powerful, powerful. I love your narrator's response to the little snippets of scripture. Very moving, one of the best for this week, in my opinion.

This poetic prose reminds me of Ez.34:16...where God says "I will search for the lost and bring back the strays... bind up the injured and strengthen the weak. I, Myself, will tend my sheep and have them lie down"...in green pastures. Yes, this "Not To Me" is a touching, moving story of the ones who have lost their way. Nice job. Well done.

This was chilling and so very well-written. Bravo! Well done. Very very good. I loved the line "willfully violated" - so simple, yet so profound.

"Iím worth more than twenty bucks.
Or at least I thought so."

Excellent piece of writing! It is good to look through the eyes of one on the other side.

Big congrats to you purity! I took a week off from the challenge, but saw your name on the winner's list and had to check this out. Heavy, emotional, thought-provoking and convicting. Keep up the good work.
