An Angry World

bench on gloomy day

The world, in the last few years, has reverted to a sort of barbarism. As practical Christianity has declined, rudeness and violence have increased. Neighbors quarrel with neighbors. Fighting is a major problem in our schools and the “gang wars” of the teenagers have come to present a serious menace in our cities. Fathers and mothers wrangle and bicker. Homes are disintegrating. High government officials in Washington engage in name-calling and in heated disputes not at all in keeping with the dignity of their office. Why and how has all this savagery crept into our social life? It is because we have forgotten Jesus’ words, “Happy are the meek; for they shall inherit the earth.” I have seen tough, rough, hardened men open their hearts by faith, receive Christ as Savior, and become gentle, patient, merciful gentlemen.

Prayer for the day

Fill me with Your mercy and love, Lord. In an angry world let me be used to bring peace where there is strife.

    Thank-you Lord for helping me with my anger issues. I was the “angry-young-man” who became the grumpy older man, and reading Your Word, returning to church, getting counsel from my minister, and frequent prayer have helped me overcome my too often angry emotions, now transformed into a more patient, peaceable, and forgiving mindset. I know I have a ways to go yet; please be with me on this path. Please bless this ministry and all those who take heart and hope from it. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    The more the world rejects the great truths and moral laws of Christ, the more evil and lawlessness will increase. One of the answers is to get back to what once made North America great, God-fearing countries. Sadly this is not likely to occur. So believers need to stay strong by daily Prayer and studying in God’s Holy Word.

    Dear Lord, we love You. We want our lives to tell the story of Your Goodness n Grace. May we be a bold witness of You. Use us in ways we never thought possible. God bless us! Amen.

    Amen, it’s amazing how Jesus words smooths out the most bumpiest roads in the world and his love endures forever.
