What shall we do with regard to this (illustrative only) Romanian couple?
Before we answer, it seems that Jesus would like me to ask myself another question. It’s this. “Immediately after the Occupation, what would Jersey folk wish that Britain and the victorious allies would do for them?” The answer you give is exactly what we should do to Romanian (and other) folk in Jersey.
In fact Jersey received a huge grant of money from Britain in 1945.... and much more....
Does Jesus care about this (fictitious but please go along with it) Romanian couple?
Yes – much more than we imagine. Jesus disclosed the heart of his Father Almighty when he taught his disciples [and the crowds] in AD 33. “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”
His realm is the realm of “doing” and “giving” and those who live in his realm wish to “give” and "do." Why?
Because they see what Jesus “did” and “gave” – “did” and “gave” to and for his enemies. Oh that, one day, Christians may be more (and later totally) like him and his Father.
