I can imagine the side eyes Rehab's family would have been getting in church. How the sisters would talk hush hush as she walked pass. Many of us even know how to communicate with friends with our eyes. How her mother would have been called a failure and how the men would have talked down on the father "Raise your daughter first before you worry yourself about the decisions we make at our meetings." How Gideon would have been refused admission to the Law School or how he would have been jobless 10years after school because his father had no connections.
I'm not trying to encourage reckless living. By all means, live a good life. My point is that we shouldn't be so quick to condemn people. Nobody is better than the other. Nobody knows tomorrow. I imagined people who wanted nothing to do with Rehab begging to be let into her apartment when the Israelites took Jericho. Their living depended on whether or not they were in her home. The poor guy you don't want to associate with today may "hammer" anytime. At least we all know someone who had no shoes, as a child, was once the president of Nigeria. How about Oprah?..
I'm sure you get my point. Thanks for reading bloghearts. Xo, Anuoluwapo
