In the not so distant past, complainers were once ignored. As time was wasted by being petty, hard working individuals built this country, trying to earn a piece of the pie. Dreams were acted upon, not just idle talk without action. Like waking up in a daze, I now find myself stuck in the wrong world, trying to figure out how this happened so fast.
Unfortunately, atheists have led the way, convincing lawyers that being offended by God has to stop. Thus, the minority is the majority, transforming the spiritual climate of the United States. When you add in political correctness, education without morality and families without faith, the days of Father Knows Best and Leave It To Beaver are gone.
11 Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. 12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. – 1 Peter
While driving back and forth to work, I stumbled across House of Their Dreams by Casting Crowns. These lyrics talk about people who come to the realization that their career and or life isn’t what they had in mind. This stunning truth is like a prodigal who comes to their senses, Luke 15:17. Whether its Christmas or the dawn of a new year, may the state of your soul inspire you to seek something more, John 10:10. Although we all have to cope with a wrong world, apply the principles of 1 Peter 2:11-12 so that you don’t wake up in the wrong eternal destination.
