Suggs and Starbuck

Dear President Trump.  Do the names Suggs and Starbuck mean anything to you.  They both went to prison in Alabama for soliciting sex from 14 year olds.  Sound familiar?  But Roy Moore did not convict them and put them in prison.  The Democratic candidate for Senate, Doug Jones, did.  Strange my enemy, how our words come back to bite us.  Who’s soft on crime??? The candidate you support, accused of multiple sexual offenses, or the prosecutor who put sex offenders behind bars?  Love is such a tough word.  It can lead us to amazing levels of bliss.  It can turn us into greedy lovers of money, sex and power.  It can bind us to a God of justice, forgiveness and grace.  Sometimes, my enemy, we have to choose, good or evil, profit or compassion, the God you say you follow, or the gods your actions tell us you truly love and worship.  Joshua said it eloquently when he confronted an apostate Israel… “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”  I pray you will too.
