In the gap..

The people of the land have practiced extortion and committed robbery; they have oppressed the poor and needy, and have extorted from the alien without redress. And I sought for anyone among them who would repair the wall and stand in the breach before me on behalf of the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one.

– Ezekiel 22:29-30

This quote made me think of much of our domestic and foreign policy which is unfortunately geared to extortion and robbery. We covet our neighbors goods. We kill and maim innocents. We turn back the clock on civil rights. We grandstand about displays of the Ten Commandments in public places but our hearts are far from the creator.
