Be Lovers Of Kindness

He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God? (micah 6:8)



We were discussing
this prophet for hire
who didn't see 
an enormous angel

His Donkey saw it
and
tried to please the prophet
by going around the angel
Since the prophet couldn't see 
he assumed
the donkey was messing with him
(did your guardians ever tell you the word 
"assume"
"makes an ass out of you and me?")

anyway, the prophet started beating the donkey.
He made himself so angry he wanted to kill the donkey.
Suddenly his eyes were "opened"
and the sword carrying angel
proclaimed
it would make the day if
the prophet was killed on the spot and the donkey went free.

That was a wonderfully special
talking donkey.
I bet it sang a happy song to its family when it got home
 about how the angel
loved donkeys.

I gotta remember
the creatures are better people
than I'll ever be.

love &love,
