Don't desecrate the land in which you live. I live here too -- I, GOD, live in the same neighborhood with the People of Israel.
wow lord, another infinite well of thanks and appreciation for your presence. what a God! what a personal, loving, God, making sure I belong not just by setting some rules or boundaries that don't apply to you and leaving me alone to exist in them, no - you join us in our world, you feel us right where we are, you grace us with your presence, your touch, your words, your hope, your love and peace, your security, your identity - who you are in our midst is who you really are! you move in our midst, God, and what better way to honour your presence than to live according to your word? what better way to transform us than working in and with us instead of thoughtlessly living apart from us? thank you lord that with you, we become after we belong and not the other way around. we love you lord!
