Our little world is in a terrible state today because the little people who are in charge of it, you and I, have let the THINGS, yes THIHGS we love and value so highly come to mean much, much more to us than our true selves, our fellow human beings, or even God.

How can people be so dumb, unaware, and immature when we have so many great books of wisdom like our own Christian Bible and many others from all around the world; all these incredible books of wisdom, spelling out, over and over, the weaknesses in humans that, over and over ends up destroying everything we build; abandoning all this wisdom for a bunch of fanciful promises from science of how smart we are with our big brains and that utopia is just around the corner on Mars or the moon while wisdom lies decaying on the bookshelf and most people stand stupefied with their eyes and their mouths hanging agape, waiting for the next big thing that’s tailored to lost mesmerized souls.

I guess I’m the dumb one for asking such an ageless, obvious question and of course, it’s the reason Jesus Christ had to die on the cross for us humans because we are always, in the end, hopeless, helpless stubborn asses or frightened rabbits who are lost until we re-immerse ourselves in the truest wisdom we can find, turn our lives over to God’s will, and faithfully, lovingly pass regained faith and wisdom on to each succeeding generation.

We obviously, at this point, have dropped the ball but it’s never too late, with God’s help, pity, and grace, to start anew because we are talking about the power of God, the power beyond all human power and understanding; the power that is shaking up our fumbling, bumbling asses right now; In other words, put God, our fellow human beings, and our country before this soul-damaging illness of extreme self-involvement. We desperately need to get back to the amazing Christian goal of attaining the mind of Christ.

I don’t mean we should cave in to every demand on us by everyone but turn to God in prayer and ask for forgiveness and mercy, pray for help and direction for ourselves and our nation, and by God’s Holy name you better mean it because He is right in the mists of you and me and He knows when we mean it. If we mean it, we with God’s help, can bring our nation back to its senses. We must try, it’s our nation and our kids’ and our grandkids’ future. We have much to overcome but with God’s help, it will be shockingly easy.
