Our world has been around for between 5 and 6 thousand years. Of course, there are many who would disagree with that statement, but most of them don’t believe in God nor in His creation timeline. Unfortunately, in our history we continue to make many of the same mistakes. We follow old patterns until we realize there are better ways of doing things. We become easy victims to innovation, invention and anything that will make our lives easier, but fail to realize that many of those transformations to our world may cause more trouble than they’re worth.
In a world that is supposed to be evolving, we see just the opposite. We’ve grown dependent on our electronic devices. We can shop from the comfort of our own homes. We have access to everything in the world, just with the click of a finger or a voice control box named Alexa. We, in fact, can control our lives without doing much physical work at all. In our attempt to create ease of doing things, we’ve turned into a nation lacking get up and go and gumption. We sit back in our recliners watching wars unfold, people’s character being judged, lives changed by numbing opioids, tolerance and acceptance of every kind of behavior. We expose ourselves to predatory actions, sex trafficking, kidnapping of young unsuspecting children for that purpose. It would seem that nothing shocks us anymore.
In the meantime our bodies are lacking physical exercise. We lose our ability to communicate face to face with others. We rely only on ourselves and seldom give any thought to God – the only true innovator around.
So what if our infrastructure was invaded? What if this world of twitter dee and twitter dumb were to collapse and we had to do things the old fashioned way again? What if we had no other resource for living other than reaching out to others? What if we turned back to the One who created our planet and every other heavenly body in the universe?
I still believe in the future of our country. I have confidence that the youth of today will pick up the pieces left behind and try to make something from them. Our hope lies with them, so we must give them the tools they need to steady the ship.
God is still at the mast. He’s even given us the perfect handbook showing His plan for us through the Bible. It is His voice, inspired into the pens of average human beings by the Holy Spirit. Maybe it’s time to dust off the Bible, or if you’re so inclined, get an app for that. God’s Word is not only our great heritage, but it tells us how much God loves each and everyone of us. It shows us how to live, to be kind, compassionate and caring for one another. It gives us structure which will last forever, even when the internet fails.
