After Cain killed his brother, the Lord asked him: "Where is your brother?"
He replied: "I don't know. Am I my brother's keeper?"
We may not be murderers like Cain, but are we not sometimes just as callous?
The most precious gift God bestows on humans is to have a family - with an added bonus to have our parents and grandparents still alive in our adulthood.
There is no way that we can escape the responsibility to nurture our dear ones bodily AND spiritually, but are we at all times alert for the needs of our elderly? ... Their physical needs as well as spending quality time talking and listening to them?
But...do we not, perhaps, sometimes become so busy with our cell phones, tablets, friends and other things that we shout back at God: AM I MOMMY AND DADDY'S KEEPER?
