Tom Brady and his high-profile wife may be well-known, rich and able to afford any domicile they want to buy. None of that mattered when they purchased a multi-million dollar home in ultra-exclusive The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. Only after two years of debate among the members were they accepted. One of the reasons delaying the decision was the Bradys’ societal status. The privacy-driven settlement didn’t want their peace disturbed by the inclusion of media-attractive people. San Diego U-T 7/15/17
It’s interesting that high-society people, themselves of significant fame, wealth and prestige, limit those who would share their elevated status. Because they consider others inferior in some way to them. Or because other famous or rich people create disturbances in their quiet community.
Unlike them, God welcomes the wickedest of sinners, the poorest of mortals, the richest of men, the most moral of humanity to live with him on the basis of their faith in Christ, repentance of their sin and baptism into Christ for the forgiveness of their sin. Where high society doesn’t want to be stained by inferiors, or ashamed by being less famous than others, God makes us all EQUAL as sinners needing Grace, having mercy on all Romans 11:32.
God overlooks all the trouble caused by people like and unlike us to who come for admission. Whatever our societal state, he elevates us all spiritually in the process of forgiving us. That very cleansing grants us entrance into his Presence. We immediately fall heir to all the riches of his knowledge and wisdom. And we joyously welcome anyone who wants to share it ALL with us.
