It has been ages since I posted, thought I might take it up again. Yesterday my friend, Ben asked on his Facebook page "are you Greedy"? That really got me to thinking - just how greedy am I and how do I face it in my own life? Can I even see it?
Then just before 10 pm, I got a phone call, and though I was already in bed and really tired, I answered the unknown number.
Turns out, it was from a friend who is in prison here in Oklahoma, and will be for a few more years. All though the call, I kept thinking, how tired I was, and how I wanted to get him off the phone. Finally, about 20 after ten, he had to go, and I dropped back into sleep.
This morning, Greedy is back. Here is a friend, desperate for contact with someone who cares about him, alone in the world, and all I could think of was sleep. Hm...
The question this Icon poses, is Christ looking out of His prison, or looking in at mine?
