Immigration. Illegals. Mueller Report. Impeachment. Politician’s promises. National debt. The list goes on and on. If we’re not careful we can get sucked into this vortex that the sky is falling. It’s never been worse than it is.
A major newspaper ran as its headline – “World to Go Dark.” Subtitle – “Whale Blubber Scarce.” That was in the mid-1800s. I recently heard of a riot that broke out in Philadelphia after the public schools announced Catholic children could recite the rosary – that was in the 1830s. Preston Brooks, representative from SC entered the Senate Chamber and beat Senator Charles Sumner unconscious with his cane. When was that you ask? 1856. In the presidential election of 1800, John Adams refused to use dirt he had on Thomas Jefferson, that Jefferson had fathered an illegitimate child with one of his slaves, Sally Hemings. Adams lost. The press core hid the fact that John F. Kennedy was having numerous affairs – so many women were being brought to White House the Secret Service couldn’t keep track of their names.
Dear friends – this world has NEVER been a friend to grace.
When the news gets crazy and politicians get nasty Sue and I look at each other and say – “Jesus reigns.” Someone has said, “What is this world coming to?” The Bible has the answer. An end. Let’s keep our eyes on the King, do his business and pray for us to be salt and light in a very dark world.
