Gerry Gutierrez' Update
There are few things worse than Sin.
One of them is to try to conceal Sin.
It goes all the way back to Adam and Eve who after the fall they try to conceal their sin by hiding and hiding the sins and of their children present in their loins.
I knew how to hug, the kind of hug of Jesus
learned from my mentor that hugged me many years before when I was afraid in
similar circumstance, in a far away country hiding from my past that keep coming
My young visitor did not fail to recognize Jesus in us; he cast away his doubts and fears, and smiled broadly. I told him to make himself at home and rest with us as long as he wanted or needed it. He told me that he was kicked out from school not for his sins but from trying to conceal his sins.
There is a business side on mentoring young
people. It is like an investment where the returns are greater than the
investment. The Lord sees to it that we get back from others in the most
unusual ways for our children.
"He who gives to the poor lends to the Lord". The Lord pays back many times over your investment. Pray for my friend “Bo”, though I do mot know him personally, I have been praying for him for many years because of a friend. Be a friend.
PS. Let us not conceal anything from one another. Let us speak the truth like Jesus who said, “In secret have I done nothing”. After all everything will come to the open anyway.
