Jesus sat and eat with the worst society had to offer. Jesus visited the sick, walked among the poor, and did not fear the mentally unstable. Nor did he fear the rich and the powerful, nor shy away from challenging the righteous and holy to be better at what they do. Jesus was also found in middle class homes eating supper, in the public parks and work places, including schools and churches and government buildings. His message of God's love spread throughout this particular place in the world long before CNN, FOX and the 24 hour news recycling machine. This begs the question, Where then does God walk among you? Is it by your side or by the wayside? Is God where you live and play and work and eat? Whether we know it or not God is there, in the Spirit and in the Flesh. How we engage with humans and all of humanity is not without witness to God's message of love and devotion to living righteously. That requires living a life that embraces a call for God's righteousness and justice in all we do.
