Pardon me

Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24: 12-14

I wasn’t quite done with yesterday’s message so I am picking up right where i left off. I sat in the house watching the news yesterday and it was just so depressing. If it wasn’t a fire claiming someone’s life, it was a tornado or earthquake. If someone wasn’t being stabbed to death they were being shot in a drive-by. From riots at high schools between blacks and browns to a 9 year old student threatening someone with a knife. All this death and destruction but I manage and we all manage to go on living our day and are sometimes unfazed by all of this chaos.

Am I growing cold as the bible suggests. Is there so much wickedness in the world that it is hard to see light at the end of the tunnel. I hope not, I hope I can stand tall and remain faithful during these times of chaos and retain the word of God in my heart. I guess it was all written and there’s nothing we can do to stop this turn of events but do our part. Raise our families and continue to spread the word of God. Standing tall with those who we love who may become weak because of these trying times. Right this second even though I can recall the dark and dreadful news that I see everyday there is a strong glimmer of hope. I know that we will be blessed and live righteously because he who stands firm in the Lord’s word will be saved. Peace and Grace be unto you.

Thought breaks the heart.
