An Angry World

By   •   June 24   •   Topics:

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.

    This devotional reminded me of a simple sign on front of a rural church in East Texas.

    Know Jesus, know peace.
    No Jesus, no peace.

    The decline of civility is apparent in every country. This trend is predicted in the Bible. However despite this decline , believers must stand together and let their light shine , while trying to maintain a Godly example.
