It is hard not to become angry and disheartened with what we see around us today. Our government seems to be out of control, our elected officials are incompetent and act like comical snake oil salesmen of the old Wild West, liberalism and relativism and greed appear to be the new cultural religions of the day, our faith is the center of constant attacks, and in a world that demands mutual respect differing opinions are labelled mean hearted and uncaring. I’ve even begun weening myself off the news and news apps on my iPad to slow the constant flood of junk the media pours out each day.
I asked myself, how our “Christian” nation could have fallen so far so quickly? How can people be so blind and treat justice, truth, and goodness with so much contempt? It made me want to shake some sense into the world but just recently God has gotten my attention and reminded me of a few things that have really changed my outlook. Sometimes you just have to get off the merry-go-round for a while and regain your balance.
