I sat in my chair at work stunned and amazed! A major earthquake had just shaken the building I work in. The entire 3 story building was swaying as the earth beneath it was changing position back and forth over some unknown distance. We had a small quake a few years ago and though I didn’t feel that one, some friends of mine said they did. This was quite different though. It was my first experience and something I had always wondered if I would ever get the chance.
So often people from other places around the world have a similar experience, but suddenly find themselves without a home, or struggling to stay alive, or worse. We live in the lap of luxury with warm comfortable houses, easy and comfortable transportation to get around, food that’s inexpensive and microwave ovens that cook in a couple minutes at the touch of a finger.
And yet, we have the audacity to make it illegal to teach children about their Creator in public schools! We have so-called Christian churches that teach Darwin’s fictitious creation story instead of informing them about our actual Creator and Savior. We are no better then those that put Our Creator on the cross. We are just like them and maybe even worse!
We are spoiled brats! Living like “Little Lord Fauntleroy” and doing our best to snuff any knowledge of the One that made us and all that’s around us out! His guide book tell us, “The goodness of God leads us to repentance.” We need to really take a good, long, hard look at all we have and reach out to him as a child reaches up to its mom or dad. Give Jesus (our Heavenly Father) our heart and have the courage to stand up for him as His faithful child!
