...that there is a host of men, women, and come-of-age children who have difficulty thinking about what is or isn't in their closet and related MSN trivial infestations...while living in the glaring light of the horrors of life that are daily endured by millions...no, billions of people in this world; many of whom are los innocentes.
The Bible puts it this way; "Therefore, do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat? or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For after all these things the Gentiles seek For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow , for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble,'" [Matthew 7:31-34]
Perhaps the ancients were fortunate not to have MSN on their "computer;" besieged by fashion, Hollywood, Emmy's, their daily Horoscope and the best places to eat and drink.
Most of the allegedly civilized world is looking away from the accident on their way to dinner and a movie.
We should never allow the world's bad news to interfere with our good times.
To make the point more pointedly I could make a list; but I won't. What would be the point? Many would look the other way. These times, these things we see and read about; things that gouge at our senses and sensibilities; they are not going away. They are worsening, and will continue to do so just like the Prophet Daniel and The Christ have said [Daniel 12:1 and Mark 13:19-20].
Whether we believe it or not these news are, for believers, good news. The Christ also said, "For as in the days before the coming of the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all way, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be." [MATTITYAHU (Matthew) 24:38 and 39].
Look up! Our redemption is closer than when we first believed.e.c.
P.S. Jeane (Etta the editor) hates the phrase, "these news are," but I say, "news" like "deer" is a word plural and singular. What say you? e.c.
