We Will Suffer for a Little While

Mother Jones has a photo essay on Ms. Ruth, who makes robes for the KKK. She loves and cares for her invalid daughter, and feeds her animals, and yet hatred reigns in her heart. It is easy to love those that are your own, but loving others is something she can't do.

"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor
and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies..." -Matthew 5:43,
44a (NIV)

Evil, Cowardice and Stupidity still walk the earth. But this too, will only be for a short while, until we go Home to our Heavenly Father.
"...though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kindsof trials. These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, whichperishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result inpraise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed." -1 Peter 1:6,7 (NIV)
Ms Ruth is "blessing" this robe:

How, O Lord, do I love these enemies?

Good post. Too bad that all the love she put into sewing those robes wasn't showered on all people in all places.
