Paul’s letter to the Galatians was most appropriate in his day and should snug into our literary patronage today.
Galatians 6:7-8 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked. For whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap. For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption. But he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
Can you feel it?
I firmly believe we have way too much time on our hands. Our cups runneth over with cell phone conversations, texting, computer chatting, e-mail, blogs, television programs, video gaming, radio selections, movies, not to mention abuse of sex, drugs, tobacco, alcohol and food.
Frankly, we are an over-stimulated, desensitized society lacking any sense of direction.
We scurry here and there, text intermittingly, sate our e-mail fetishes, squirt off a blog or two, plunge into our “fav” TV shows, drool over revealing bodies smacked into view, battle hand-held game toy monsters, stimulate our sexual appetites, “suck-drag-snort-shoot-up” drugs, gurgle down the booze and feed our faces. No wonder we function poorly at work, lose contact with families, grow fatter, feel yucky and sleep badly, and slowly lose our common sensibilities.
Our parents used to tell us when we had a problem, “Put on your thinking cap.” Are we “thinking” anymore? I think we misplaced the caps somewhere.
Do we have a problem? Yes!
“Help us, Lord! We’ve fallen physically and spiritually…and we can’t get up without your strength and guidance.”
