Thoughts for the Middle of the Night

Do you ever have trouble sleeping? Do you wake up in the middle of the night pondering ideas? Certainly, not all of our thoughts are that profound. But every once in awhile, don’t you leave your dreams and wrestle with the heavy stuff? Someone sent me some ideas that Joseph Robertson is getting people to ponder. I guess they are worth waking up for. Maybe you can think them through with me.

  • The idea of children growing up in poverty outrages us.
  • The idea of people being unable to feed themselves, or provide shelter for themselves outrages us.
  • We ask ourselves, “In a World filled with Injustice and Pain, where does my own comfort fit in?”
  • We ask ourselves, “What exactly is ‘enough?’”
  • We believe that the gap between the rich and the poor has only served to hide the Truth of Reality.
  • We believe that Poverty is not the problem. I am the problem.
  • We challenge the perceived notion of what is Real in today’s society.
  • We live our lives under the concept of treating others as we would be treated.
  • We treat all human beings as equals.
  • We look for those who believe what we believe to come together with us in strength to address these major problems of civilization.
  • We seek to bring together those with resources, opportunity, and passion for making poverty HISTORY – and exalt the truth of reality.
