The folly of Secular Living

leave a comment »


What shall be said of today’s standards?  Possessions, pride,  being politically correct and all that “stuff”, are utter folly.  We see a man in an expensive car and think how he has become something.  But we don’t see the heart of the man.  We see a “beautiful” woman and ponder how wonderful it would be to look like that (or to wake up with that next to us).   We see a mansion and desire to live in it.  We see power being weilded by people in government and feel the jealousy of desire for their power.

What we fail to notice is that what we have is plenty enough to test our hearts.  Enough with the false standards of secular living.  Look to God.   Consider how He is all powerful, all beauty, all life, all compassion.  Yet with all God owns (including you and your skin) He does not strut around like we do.  He is so much more in every way.  Desire to be like Him.  Learn from Him.  Accept His Son as your Lord and begin to learn what true life is all about.

By His Grace.
