On a personal level, my car has 171,000 miles on it, the 58 year old discs in my back ache, my dog got sick, and I am recently unemployed.
On a much larger stage the news is filled with cowardly terrorist attacks, racial tensions that have reached critical mass, and truth in politics is at an oxymoronic high.
Even in the 'Christian' community there is so much angst and devisive feelings in the church. God's neverchanging truths (our Bibles) are now in question by politically correct self proclaimed 'progressive' believers. The church is a frog in a boiling pot baptism compromising our core values on marriage, alchohol, premarital relationships, the gay lifestyle, and much more.
The million dollar question now is.. What's a fella like me to do when everything is .. BROKEN? I have a few ideas..
- "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” - Mark 12:30-31 (the words of Jesus)
- For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (our bibles are not outdated)
- Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.. Psalms 33:12 (vote accordingly)
May God bless, use, and MEND your lives, country, and world in ways that are beyond your dreams.
