Seeking Things Above

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. (Col 3:1)

God loves the illegal immigrant

Illegal immigration sign
Illegal immigration is a hot political issue. This means that there are a variety of opinions on what to do about it, if anything. We're a media driven country, which includes news media and entertainment media. However, all the media has desynthesized us. Illegal immigration is a political issue in our minds but what about the illegal immigrant?

I'm sure there are some illegal immigrants that are criminal in nature and sneaked into our country because of the bounty here for stealing. However, my guess is that the majority of these people are looking for a way to help their families to survive.

I'm not making a political statement one way or another about what we should or should not do about this problem. I just want to make sure we step back and remember, we are not just talking about a political issue. We are talking about real people. Fathers and mothers not knowing if they are going to be able to piece together enough money to feed their family. They are living in a country where the language is foreign to them. There's an obvious hostility towards them from many Americans. Yet many believe this is the only hope they have.

As you think about this problem and vote for your political leader of choice that claims to have the answer, don't forget that the illegal immigrant is a person just like you. If our only answer is to lock down our borders to keep out the poor and oppressed, what is their hope? What would the God of the oppressed want you to do?
