Respect-others1

Picture a world where life had no value; a place where brother fought against brother to the death; where unborn lives were snuffed out in an instant; where seniors were deemed useless and exterminated after a certain age; where children killed someone just for the fun of it. What a horrible place that would be and yet we are living in the midst of such a world.

Whatever happened to respect for human life? Whatever happened to consequences for bad actions? Whatever happened to the laws of God? The Ten Commandments were given to man to be a law for our lives and yet they seem to be stomped on daily, as life takes a back seat to pleasure and selfishness.

I am ashamed of what has happened within my own country. Guns are being blamed for taking lives rather than the people who pull the trigger. Children see violence as a thrill rather than it having any consequences. Abortion is a cop out for taking responsibility for poor choices, with no conscience about the murder of an unborn life.

Lord, help our nation to begin to look to your Word for answers again instead of within themselves. We need your law as well as your Gospel in our lives. Help us to remember to teach our children the value of life and the consequences of bad actions.  We must return to you and your law if we are ever to survive as a nation.  Amen!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
