When God looks around this beautiful world He created what does He see? It saddens my heart to imagine what He must think of the false reality that we have made for ourselves.
"Show me, Lord. Take off these worldly lens I am viewing the earth through and show me the truth."
There is not an area of our lives that has escaped corruption. Though there are pockets of goodness and beauty still, the majority of the human race has given themselves over to lies of every kind. May the Spirit of Truth pierce our hearts and lift the blinders off our eyes. If you think I am being overly harsh I ask you to pray and look around you with honesty. If someone from 100 years ago saw how we are living today I think they would be apalled. Instead of rejecting evil we have accepted it into our society and some have even embraced it. Our governments, banks, major corporations, schools, the film industry, our books - you'd be hard-pressed to find an area that hasn't suffered internal rot. It started slowly...but sin snowballs. The more a society gives in and accepts sin the more vulnerable they become. Abortion, pornography, rampant crime, disrespect , adultery, corporate greed, dishonesty.... need I go on?
And so I ask an honest question:
If Jesus stood in front of us and gave his opinion on the shape of the world today, what do you think He would say?
