Sunday Ramblings...The Way of our World

When we are willing to pay 30% of our income on adventures and entertainment but aren't willing to give 10% of our income to our Church, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we worry about what our house looks like, even paying someone to dust our shelves and clean the floors, yet aren't worried about the layers of dust on our unread Bible, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we burden the Federal Government with taking care of the widows and the orphans instead of helping them in every way we, and our Church, can, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we allow our kids to be raised by daycares and the school in town, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we deem living together before marriage a social norm and something that is no longer disapproved of, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we grab our meals at a drive through and never take time to sit down and share them as a family, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we can follow a strict schedule all week but just can't seem to get to Church on Sunday, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we bring kids up thinking that they can't lose and that everyone is a winner, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we idolize people who we don't know at all, we just enjoy characters they play on the silver screen, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we memorize scientific theories, social cultures, foreign religion and literature from worlds ago but aren't allowed to reference the Bible or pray in school, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we consume ourselves with worldly entertainment and forget to get away to a quite place to have some time to listen and reconnect, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we no longer give people responsibilities and hold no one accountable for their actions, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we worry more about animal abuse than the harming and stealing of human lives, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we communicate on facebook, email and texting but can't visit on a deep and personal level with people face to face, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we have hours upon hours to be engaged with television and social media but not 10 minutes to spend in devotion.

When we allow small things to get us so angry that relationships are shattered, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we allow generations to learn for morals, family ideals and social norms just from what they see on TV, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we allow our minds to grow stale, doing nothing to learn more or to develop ourselves, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we no longer know the fruits of the spirit because we are so far removed from the spirit, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.

When we outlaw God from our government, our state, our cities and our homes, we have no reason to wonder how our world got to be this way.
