What can be learned from an inmate. Well, these people have lost everything. They have literally nothing. And yet, something bright & shiny, that no man can take away from them, shines through. The beautiful soul, given by God. The hope for a better future. The faith that binds the souls collectively, of those that find God. For when all is lost, a person only has God to depend on. Humility, humanity, and Love for those that reach out for it. The ability to not be judgemental. Not all have this...many are lost like sheep. But many do find God. And those are the ones i call "The Beautiful People".
Remember, Jesus commanded us to visit those in jail. If we are Christian, it is our duty to visit or write to those incarcerated. Jesus said, what we do for the least of society, we do directly for him. Providing a letter to a lonely inmate is like giving them a treasure. For rare is the person willing to let their guard down & put their judgement aside & share their life with an inmate. Receiving a letter from an inmate is like a bar of gold. It's value cannot really be expressed in terms of money. I encourage everyone to write to an inmate. It will truly better & enrich your life....if you let it.
Peace & love be upon all you that read this. Remember, you do not have to be perfect, you need only try to better yourself each day.
