What Has Happened To Our Society?

Something is very sick with the society that we live in. Let me show you just a few examples: Something is wrong when we measure a man by his ability to shoot a basket, hit a ball, or catch a pass. These men may be good at what they do, but what about the men and women who go out each day and work hard to provide for their families? Why is it that many of the “stars” think that they can do just about anything that they want and not be responsible for it? If we speed, we must be the fined, but many of the “big names” think that they should not be held responsible for their sins. I might add that there are two reasons that they think they can sin and get by with it. One is that they think they are above the law and that they are so big that the law would not touch them. Secondly, they think that they will not get caught. They do it and expect everyone to overlook their sin.



Should we not all just get along with each other? Doesn’t the Scriptures teach us that we should try to get along with people?

If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.” – Rom. 12:18

That is true, but sometimes we cannot always get along with people


Go For It

God has a will for each of His children, and He is very happy to reveal it to the person who is willing to follow it. The first and foremost thing that a Christian has to do is be willing to follow the will of God. Paul tells us,

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” – Romans 12:1-2


Facing Discouragement

Does the Christian ever get discouraged? If we are honest with ourselves, we must admit that we do get discouraged from time to time. When we look into the Bible, we find that great men of faith suffered from this affliction. Elijah is a prime example. Notice his experience after dealing with the false prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel:

 “But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness and came and sat down under a juniper tree, and he requested for himself that he might die and said, ‘It is enough. No, o Lord, take away my life, for I am not better than my fathers.’” – I King 19:4
