Senseless

 

“Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord” (Proverbs 1:29).
I have decided to quit trying to make sense out of the world’s behavior. A fallen world is just senseless, and no matter how hard I try, the task is impossible. The problem is that the world refuses to recognize its Creator.

Old Timers Are Welcome

Today’s Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:17 – “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”
Old timers are welcome. What was once a place for the 20-somethings to post mundane things of the present has become a meeting place for reminiscing. It is called Facebook. Someone can post a picture of some relic from the past and then invite people to “like” it if they can identify the object. It could be anything from a church key to a key that opened a can of spam to a roller skate key to a crown cork.
