Grow!

You know, we witness record numbers of families splitting up these days, our kids getting zombified, increasing numbers of people on their way to prison, and an increasing culture of trendies who think population control is cool.  The country is going to hell in a hand basket.. and there are a number of reasons why, but one of them I was pondering tonight- We have a bunch of spoiled little boys who won’t be, or don’t know how to be men.  The princesses don’t help either, but that could be sorted out if we were all right, and taking our Biblical roles responsibly.  A bunch of rebellious boys who didn’t get enough discipline or love growing up, and that’s where they stayed.  Stunted growth.  They hate God, and they won’t come under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  He is absolutely everything, or he is nothing.  These fellas amass wealth, and toys, and all manner of possessions, and then when that doesn’t satisfy their void, they attempt to fill it with entertainment.  Some people may look at them, and think they got it all.  They might even try to convince themselves and other people of that too.  They know as well as I do, that their whole life is absolutely worthless apart from Jesus Christ.  Worthless!  It’s all wood, hay, and stubble.. and it’ll all burn in eternity!  Not even a legacy to leave behind!  They know they’re empty!  Yet they go through the same routine each and every day, never attempting to change anything or grow at all. Let’s just ignore the inevitable and entertain ourselves some more.  Well, I’d feel the same way if I didn’t have this goal to work towards- and this one will last through eternity.  My real life won’t even really start, until the day I leave this physical body. Until then, I drag this cross along as always.. some days I can barely pick it up and move a couple of steps.  I’ll sure be glad when this is all over.  ..and I hope you aren’t one who’s dreading the last mile.
