Do you like what is going on in the world? No, me neither. If only people would just let us at it, we could fix things couldn’t we? Oh yes, we would fire politicians, make people be at peace with one another in the Middle East, slap law-breakers in prison for a lifetime.
Oh yes, we would fix it all, except ourselves of course, because we are so righteous and perfect and holy, right? Wrong!
There is one thing wrong with the world and it is sin.
There are really only two things we can do to help mend the world.
- Get right with God.
- Get right with our fellow man.
So how are we doing with that? Where would people end up if they followed us right now?
James 5:9- Friends, don’t complain about each other. A far greater complaint could be lodged against you, you know. The Judge is standing just around the corner (MSG).
Prayer: Lord, forgive us for our self-righteous attitude. We have nothing to brag about. Help us, for Christ’s sake. Amen.
