Day 6 Friday
"Little Madeline", by Simon Morden, is a story, except for a few references of a more modern technology and that she was some kind of mutant life form, could be about any city in the world, small or large. As Jesus told His disciples, “The poor you have with you always.” It's amazing that this story and Good Friday show up at the same time, for this is about choices. Jesus could have chosen the easy way, but that would have meant there would be no salvation. Little Madeline could have taken the "easy" way, but would have found herself in bondage to the poverty around her. Richness is not, nor ever has properly been defined by what a person owns or possess. It is defined by how much they give away. In this sense Little Madeline was rich beyond those she lived with. She had something the rich themselves could not buy with all their wealth. She followed the example of Christ. On this Good Friday may we all purpose in our hearts to become poor in spirit that we may become rich in grace.
