“The truth about it is, whether we is rich or poor or somethin in between, this earth ain’t no final restin place. So in a way, we is all homeless–just workin our way toward home.” Denver Moore, Same Kind of Different as Me
It seems incredibly appropriate that I finished reading Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore on the day that we set aside to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Based on what I know of Dr. King, he definitely would appreciate the unlikely friendship forged between Ron Hall and Denver Moore. Ron is the rich Texas art dealer and Denver is the former slave turned homeless man who forever changed Ron Hall’s life. The theme of this book centers around God’s faithfulness and the fact that His way is always better than our way. I also thought a good bit about the admonition found in Matthew 22:39 to “love your neighbor as yourself.” It’s always awesome to be reminded of how God can take the most perplexing of situations and use them for His glory and the good of others. Same Kind of Different as Me is a book that you will have a hard time putting down, so do yourself a favor and pick up a copy today!
