What will it take to stop the foolishness?
Young men “punching” older people, just because.
Young women having sex with anyone and everyone, just because.
Old men seeking the favors of young women and being duped, just because.
Old women thinking younger men really want them for their bodies, when it’s really about the money, just because.
And we wonder why–
Crime is rampant in our neighborhoods,
Education is not important to our children,
AIDS is becoming more prevalent in every ethnicity and sexual orientation and age group,
Fewer and fewer people even know how “to train up their kids” so they’ll know what to do when they get older,
Politicians never do anything for the people for whom they are supposed to serve.
And Americans are hated and America a target for all fools,
Yet, Everyone wants to come to America to escape the foolishness in their own countries,
Just to start the foolishness all over again, here.
“We’ll rise to challenges” so people will notice us, but
We won’t read a Bible in the privacy of our own homes.
“Without Christ in our lives we are nothing, can do nothing, and will be destroyed
By the enemy–who hates all God has created–and we simply sit around, waiting
For the end that is inevitable–the destruction of mankind, because we do not want to obey God!
What will it take for us to figure this out?
When all our loved ones are lying, bleeding to death in the streets and gutters,
Or when we see the hopelessness and despair in all the eyes of people,
From every walk of life–knowing that the end is truly near–and all hope is gone?
What will it take?
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so whoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”
And again, I ask–what will it take for us to do the right thing in God’s sight and not our own?
