The LORD is just and loves just deeds; the upright will see his face.
How should a Kingdom Man think and act on immigration? When done correctly, immigration is a good and healthy aspect of our nation which allows for new ideas and opinions to be introduced while helping to alleviate the suffering of those less fortunate through our charity. Our current issue is that those in charge of the immigration system in our country are trying mightily to provide an answer, but continuously fall short because they practice lawlessness devoid of Christ while hiding behind Bible verses that call for charity. Their answers are so simplistic that they repeatedly cause more harm than good to all those involved, both those asking for help and the people of the country that are trying to help.
So what do we do? Prudently, we must recognize that no earthly kingdom has unlimited resources to provide assistance but also that we are called to be as charitable as possible, sharing our earthly resources and Christ with everyone as a sign and witness to our faith. While Christ did not give any specific answers about immigration, he did command us to love our neighbor as ourselves, especially the poor and broken, as they are the ones most in need of His Love and Mercy. Thus our response to any Godless immigration policy must be to bring the focus back to the dignity of every person involved as a child of God.
We are ALL created in the image of God and it is our duty as Kingdom Men to protect and care for those we have charge over in our families and communities. Those who administer immigration take on a heavy burden of balancing finite resources with compassion and charity. They must understand that any system that takes advantage of the vulnerable is unacceptable. Thankfully there is one kingdom with an unlimited resource. That is God’s Kingdom and the resource is Love. We all must put our faith and trust in God asking him to guide our hand in these matters to increase the dignity of all through our actions and responsibilities.
Daily Battle Order
Would Christ approve of an immigration system that causes harm to the vulnerable? Do we? Can we explain why any system that causes harm is not in line with true Charity. Lastly, how do we prioritize our own Charity?
